Private Duty Nursing

Last update: 7/21/2014

This website is a means of communicating private duty nursing needs of Children's Hospital of Wisconsin patients to independent providers and home health agencies. All available private duty nursing providers are encouraged to check this website often for a list of jobs available (Scroll down to find a list of children by location.). Independent providers must be RNs or LPNs who have received a Wisconsin Medicaid Provider number. Consent has been obtained from the child's parent to share information with interested providers.

For more information about becoming an independent nurse provider, visit www.wisconsinphp.org.

To access the Wisconsin handbook for nurses in independent practice, visit www.forwardhealth.wi.gov/wiportal/default.aspx and follow the steps below:

  • Select online handbooks
  • Choose the following options from the drop-down boxes:
    • Provider
    • BadgerCare Plus and Medicaid
    • Nurses in Independent Practice

A reminder, Respiratory Care Services classes are required for independent nurses providing care to children on ventilators. Classes are also open to respiratory therapists and agency nurses. Dates are listed below. Registration closes 3 weeks prior to the class date to provide enough time to complete online learning modules.

Pediatric Ventilator Certification and Recertification courses are now held MONTHLY at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. Pre-registration is required. The certification course requires online study and post test prior to attending the skills class.

For information about classes, contact Mary Lisowski at maxishare@chw.org.
