Hospice Nursing

Hospice nurses can use this section to network, discuss, and share trends and practices with other Hospice Nursing Professionals. Hospice nurses perform many traditional nursing duties such as observing, assessing, and recording symptoms, and they still work closely with physicians, administer medications, and provide emotional support. Hospice nurses have a particularly tough job because, from the outset, they know that the patient for whom they are caring is terminally ill.
