I began as a hospice case manager when I had 1 year LTC experience (only 1 year as an RN). I had a great team and they were very supportive, but it took me several months to reach the comfort level that I am at now. Hospice is sort of a different breed, since you are so autonomous. Your patients usually only see a MD or NP for face-to-face visits every few months. However, their condition can change rapidly, within hours. You need to be able to recognize the current situation and then predict what will be happening in the future. There is A LOT of teaching, especially with home patients who have family members caring for them. Also, the meds may be more streamlined, but the dosing is generally higher for hospice and you need to have a very good grasp on the multiple uses for certain meds and which med to use in which situation. Also, you have to be able to think on your feet and figure it out by yourself if you need to. I have had situations where I have gone to see a patient and they had respiratory distress, severe secretions, severe pain and were very restless. It can be quite overwhelming for an experienced nurse, much less a new grad.
I dont want to discourage you, because it is SO WORTH IT, I love hospice. But be sure to get with a company that has a strong team of management to train you and support you, doctors who will be patient while you figure it out, and be prepared to be independent. Also, it is a very emotional job- you need to have strong people skills and be good at supporting families.
Good luck!! Hope you find a great job!
