APN in Hospice?

  1. Considering getting my APN, I love hospice and would like to stay with it, are there opportunities for APN's in hospice?

    In my large hospital system, APNs are used in the palliative care dept as well as hospice.

    Yes, there is a need for NP in hospice and in palliative care. My health system also uses NP for palliative care service in the hospital setting. New Medicare regulations require "face to face" meetings with physicians or mid level practitioners on a regular basis.
