hospice nurse interview.

  1. Hi, I am new to this bulletin board, but not to nursing. I have been an NICU nurse for 15 years. I am presently in school for my BSN. we are doing a class on death and dying.
    I need to interview a hospice nurse. Unfortunly I do not know anyone in hopsice. I was wondering what it is like to do hospice care? what type of difficulties do you encounter with families as well as in the multidisciplinary areana, how do you meet the families spitural and emotional needs,
    thank you for your help

    I do not work in hospice except as a volunteer. I have been a nurse for 17 years. I do some nursing things as a volunteer.

    If I would do email me at susanrene@msn.com

    Good luck,

    I got Hospice training in LPN school back in 1977. The whole focus is on comfort. Now I do Home Hospice, and love it. Would be happy to answer any questions.

    The biggest part of hospice which surprised me the most when I started, is that I always feel like I'm cheating the patient. I feel soooo blessed when I leave, like they were the ones doing the work and not me. That feeling of serenity...from the connection we make with our patients, it cannot be beat.
