Home Care at Akron Children’s Hospital


Care that helps patients feel right at home

Think about the most rewarding times of your nursing career. Now imagine having that feeling every day—when you provide the highest quality care to young patients in their own homes. As an LPN in Home Care services, you’ll work with patients in a one-on-one care setting that helps you really get to know the child you’re caring for. You’ll be their everything, with the full backing of the hospital team. And all the while, you’ll know that your care is helping to ease both disruptions for patients and financial burdens for families.

If you’re a self-confident LPN who’s always open to learning, this opportunity will reconnect you with the reasons you became a nurse in the first place. Come build compassionate, caring, professional relationships with patients and their families at Akron Children’s Hospital Home Care department.
