I'm an RN that currently works for a home health agency. I am considering hospice nursing, but am hesitant to go into it. My question for all of you in hospice nursing is, how did you know it was for you? Had you ever experienced death before and how did being part of a person's death affect you. Not to sound childish, but isn't it incredibly sad to see someone die. Seems like it would be a depressing job. But on the other hand, many people love the job. So what I'm trying to ask I guess is, why do you love it, do you feel depressed a lot from the death you see?
Thanks for your replies
