I am a hospice nurse and am also in an RN to BSN program. For my capstone I have requested to complete the requirements in a parish nurse program. This article speaks to exactly why I am going this direction. Thank you for sharing.
I see this all the time with family and with nurses caring for the patient. I believe this stems from many different reasons including the lack of hospice training in nursing school programs as well as general attitudes and beliefs of society in general.
I see a trend that concerns me greatly over the past 10 years: Students are coming out onto the clinical floors and need waaaaaaay more direction than they used to. The students used to be assigned to the PATIENT, and seek out direction from the Clinical Instructor for guidance.
NOW, the Student Nurse appears to be assigned to the Patient AND the RN, with the Clinical Instructor off somewhere else.
