Who is "us"?

Where are you looking for these hospice nurses?

For what reason are you looking?

You could try shouting "Marco!"

Do a google or bing search with the terms 'hospice providers' plus the state and county where the pt will be. That will provide a source for hospice nurses. If you are trying to find a private pay Rn with hospice experience, that's different and you would want to check up on experience and recommendations.

I would imagine the op is asking regarding finding hospice nurses to work for that agency....and if that's the case, I don't know either. We have utilized ads in the local paper, online, job fairs etc and still find it difficult to secure applications for employment of hospice experienced nurses
