Hospice interview

  1. Interviewing for a per diem hospice position - any advice on how to present myself would be great from you experienced hospice nurses. It is a goal of mine to work hospice - have been working ICU and pretty burned. Mostly due to keeping folks alive who are already dead... Anyway any advice would be great.

    Hi, I was hired at Hospice about a month ago, after working Per Diem for a month. I love it!!!!! Honestly, in my interview it all came down to how you felt about the work Hospice was doing, if you had any personal experience w/Hospice, and naturally, what other experience you had. Many nurses in our Hospice came from ICU/CCU and ER. I guess I just was very honest about what was in my heart, and why I thought I wanted to work in Hospice. Per diem was a good way to learn about hospice, but I'm so glad I'm full time because you're able to establish relationships with both patients and family. It's very satisfying . One of the first things that struck me, and still sticks w/me today is that, finally, you have the luxury of spending time with these folks, and it's so welcomed and appreciated.

    Good luck, and let me know how it turns out
