IN-HOME NURSING SERVICES

State law allows HealthNow to offer in-home nursing care through Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) or Registered nurses (RNs). RNs supervise the treatment provided by LPNs and they give direct care while also teaching you and your family about your care and treatment. They monitor and evaluate your care, to make sure that the treatment plan is effective.
