I've worked for a non-profit hospice for 7 years and have been very underpaid, but it was an awesome way to learn from my co-workers who were in the same building. I'm getting ready to quit and have applied for a home hospice job with a for-profit agency where pay is much better. I personally can't imagine having done home care without the crisis intervention abilities that i gained while in the IPU. But the non-profit sure will use nurses up, and if they ask for raises or better benefits, they'll tell you to get another job... I am:)
I have been a RN now since 1992, my speciality was the ICu, used hospice for my husbands death, now I have reacently switched to Hospice/ Case Manager. When I say reacently I mean as little as two weeks ago, I have been in orientation now and so far it is very exciting.
I can't wait to be on my own.
