    I wish you well. Be sure and let your colleagues help you along as you learn hospice nursing. It is very different from other areas and extremely rewarding. Do be sure to give yourself permission to grieve and grow. You have to learn to do this when you work with patients that you know will be dying soon. Be sure and make the most of your time off, vacations take on new meaning. You must have time away. Also, be sure and take advantage of the continuing education, and after you have been doing it for a while, consider taking the CHPN exam. Good luck and welcome to hospice nursing!
