I just got my first hospice job as an LVN. I've been working in a clinic/urgent care since licensed a year ago, I'm keeping my clinic job and hospice will be part time. I'm really excited to start training next week, while looking up "New hospice LVN" a site for HPNA Hospice and Pallative Nurses association popped up. I'm thinking about joining, is it worth it, any thoughts???

I am a HPNA member.(for almost a year now) I guess it really depends on what your looking for out of the membership.I joined to get a discount on my certification exam and testing materials which were expensive.You also get a subscription to the Hospice and Palliative Nursing Journal magazine.I am an avid reader myself but sadly didnt take much interest in the magazine.It appears to be like a newspaper,alot of articles after articles bunched together.If you are interested in attending chapter meetings ect and really becoming involved it may also benefit you to join.Best wishes!
