Yay! I start working for Hospice on Monday! I've been wanting to do this even before I started the nursing program and finally my dream is coming true!
Do you have any advice for a Hospice newbie?
Is it ok to cry with the family? I will be on-call nights and will go on emergency calls and death calls. How does the family usually react when a different nurse goes on the call? I won't have a regular group of patients so I really won't have time to get to know them and "bond" with them.
I'm really excited, but really nervous at the same time.
