    Just a typical day for me. I hear this multiple times a day. It doesn't necessarily mean the family is in denial. It does mean they aren't ready for the discussion. Forcing the discussion only makes them stop listening. Meet them where they are. Listen. Be empathetic. Families will start asking questions when there is a change or when they are ready. As mentioned above, most folks think we are the Reaper. Palliative does not mean no Care nor Hospice. We also manage chronic illnesses such as MS, ALS, & Sickle Cell etc.

    What drove me to become an NP? Simple FLOOR NURSING sucks and wasn't going to do that until retirement.

    Definitely need to go into a specialty as an FNP to make money. My specialty isn't for everyone but I enjoy it. I feel like I'm filling a much needed role and assisting both patients and families. I do take call but its only every 5th week. I have work/life balance and leave the office by 5 p.m. at the latest daily.

    I earn $150 each day I am on call if I do not have o go into the hospital. If I have to go in it becomes $150, +mileage, and I clock in when I get there to earn my usual hourly rate until I am done.

    I do not forsee NP salaries going up in the future. More supply and lower quality graduates due to many sloppy schools, and people are catching on that many NPs are not ready for practice when they graduate, or really ever. There are some good ones though so not group bashing here.

    ^^^This! I was less than thrilled to discover my new partner in palliative care earned her degree through a for profit, completely online, and no supervision aka Degrees For Everyone U

    Please stop "orientated" one is oriented and is on orientation while orienting. One does not orientate

    We also do not "conversate". People converse with each other and have conversations.

    Irregardless is is also incorrect. The word is regardless. Irregardless literally is saying without regard without

    While non-standard usage, both conversate and irregardless are real, and becoming more accepted. Having said that, I have to say that I completely agree with you as to all three.

    And while we're on the subject, whatever happened to the comma, particularly the Oxford comma.
    Ain't is also in the dictionary but not proper English. If people choose to accept it then good for them. I will continue to pass.
