    Hello, yes, I also have been out of the Hospice track, but still continue to do the work in the LTC. Hospice is my line of work, but I couldn't take all the driving and low pay I was receiving. So in turn had to change jobs. The rewards I receive are so great and I am so proud that I can help these residents and families. Thanks Tex.

    The work is definitely rewarding, but way challenging... you need all your nursing AND life skills. So I wonder, why are we so poorly paid?
