    I've only been in hospice for about 1 1/2 years, but absolutely love it. I started out in case mgmt and now just do admissions, which I actually like a lot more than I thought I would when my...

  4. Nightingale Home Health..anyone?
    I too worked for them as a PRN in Minnesota - and I had to do oncall as part of the position (in fact, 2 weeks after starting I was on call). The company itself was good, but at the time I worked...

  6. Blood draws and home health
    Not a deal breaker for home care. If you don't know how to do it, they will gladly teach you (if you even need to learn at all - at my place, we very rarely do blood draws in the home, most of our...

  7. What do you wear?
    I think it depends on the company you work for. One place I was at all the nurses wore scrubs (choice was scrubs or business casual, as it was a lot of wound cares, 99% choose scrubs). The place...

  9. Terrified of killing my patients/making mistakes/missing something important
    Totally normal. I'm off orientation for 2 months now and still feel like that. I do have to admit, though, working on the night shift is way less hectic then days. Although you have more patients,...

  14. Orientation Length/Number of Pts
    As a fellow new grad, I don't think you're overreacting. I think no one feels prepared to be out on their own without the security of a preceptor to help get you through the day. But once you go on...
