I have been out of Hospice as a formal nurse +4 years, but I practice as one q day d/t I am the MDS cord at a LTC. I enjoy reading and responding to your questions! Let's get this thread active.................thanks tex
Hello, yes, I also have been out of the Hospice track, but still continue to do the work in the LTC. Hospice is my line of work, but I couldn't take all the driving and low pay I was receiving. So in turn had to change jobs. The rewards I receive are so great and I am so proud that I can help these residents and families. Thanks Tex.

The work is definitely rewarding, but way challenging... you need all your nursing AND life skills. So I wonder, why are we so poorly paid?
