If you are self-employed, you will be able to deduct your mileage going to and from your clients' homes.  If you work for an agency and will be a W-2 employee, you will not be able to deduct the mileage.

Will you be receiving a W-2 from a healthcare agency or are you an independent contractor?

Yes. The agency said I could deduct my millage and to keep track but I want to know for sure, if this is true.  Iv'e also heard the laws have changed this year

As TurboTax Alan states below--if you are a W-2 employee then you will NOT be able to deduct anything for mileage.  Job-related expenses are not deductible for W-2 employees.  Better talk about that with the employer.
