Is Hospice the place for me?

  1. I returned to a hospital setting a few years ago after a lifetime of raising a family, running a daycare, and managing a women's substance abuse program in the justice system. I was overwhelmed by the lack of patient interaction which is why I entered nursing to begin with. I left that job and did not think there was a place for me as an RN. My recent personal experience with hospice (my mother) has me very interested in returning to work in the field. What courses/classes/materials are available so I may prepare for the certification exam? I got nothing from google except I did find this wonderful site I am a person of faith and believe this would be the perfect place to use my skills.
