I posted in case management earlier today, but it really should have been in this forum. I interviewed for a case manager RN job today with a hospice company. I mistakenly thought the job was similar to case mangers at hospitals, or even with home health, more like a desk job, but was happy to find out it is a job for hospice care in the field.
I have been an RN for a little over a year, in critical care. I have longed for a position that would allow me to build more of a relationship with my patients and their families. I believe in the hospice philosophy of care, and after a year of watching patients suffer greatly while dying in the hospital, I welcome the chance to work with people who have taken control of their end of life.
I nailed my interview and was hoping for an offer by Friday (when they told me they'd make a decision), but they called just now telling me to expect the offer tomorrow! I'm thrilled and scared! It's a big change. It's been nice reading this forum, because so many of you are so passionate about your jobs and really seem to love them.
