I was always interested in Nursing, and after being involved with Hospice because my mother was dying of cancer at the age of 46, I knew I wanted to be a hospice nurse and make a difference like her nurses did for us.
I went back to school at the age of 45 and got my nursing degree, one year ago. I landed a job in a nursing home, which I love because I also think the elderly deserve the best care and nurses that want to make a difference. The only problem is there isn't alot of learning, trainning and the opportunity for more education when you work in LTC.
Those of you in Hospice Nursing, please tell me how I can transition in the Hospice field. What do I need to do to transition. what skills do I need, what classess or trainning can I do? Any advice would be appreciatede.
