I was wondering if someone could share some of the pros/cons of hospice nursing. I was a LPN for 4 years in med-surg, I am now a new RN working LTC and agency. I just had an interveiw with a hospice agency and it sounds wonderful. I just want be sure I am making the right decision.
I started looking into hospice because my grandfather had a horrible death and was in my opinion denied the dignity and compassion that he deserved. I want to make a difference in others end of life care that my family and grandfather never got. I just want to make sure I am doing this for all the right reasons I guess. So what would some pros/cons be in the field of hospice nursing? And is it a good place to start as a new grad?
