Crisis care position as first hospice job?

  1. I've worked in a SNF for five years, and have cared for pts on hospice, but in a SNF, hopsice really guides the care with recommendations from the SNF staff. I'd like to change my career to hospice, and have found several positions for crisis care. Is this a good starting point for an LPN? They stated that you go into the pts home or SNF when things are "going bad" and try to get them back in line....I don't want to get in over my head, and was thinking that in patient hospice might be a better place to start (but haven't found a job there yet!).
