What Makes a COC Nurse?

What Makes a COC Nurse?

Communities of Care holds a comprehensive home care nursing license, and we employ only RNs and LPNs. Other agencies also staff unlicensed personnel such as CNAs and PCAs, but we have found our niche in complex home care nursing. All of our employees are licensed RNs and LPNs who choose to provide their patient care in the home setting. COC can provide education for client-specific needs, such as trach or ventilator training, and our nurses have often taken these opportunities.

According to our Director of Nursing, Janelle Morse, every COC nurse is trained to perform a head-to-toe assessment and provide lifesaving intervention when needed. However, LPNs require RN supervision to draw blood, give injections, or provide other specific care. RNs and LPNs have more clinical and research hours in their education programs, as opposed to PCAs, CNAs, and other types of nurses.

Communities of Care has been providing quality home care nursing for over 20 years, and we are grateful for our amazing staff of caring professionals who make a difference every day. If you’d like to join our team, you can learn more about us, or email us.
