Thinking about hospice nursing

  1. Hello, I'm new to the forums and looking for some input on hospice nursing. I have been offered a position and would like to take it, but am still a bit reluctant about the emotional intensity. Please offer your experiences. I have 31 years of nursing experience and am also a parish nurse, so I feel it would be a good match for my patients, but I'm not sure if it would be for me as I get very close to people. What are your feelings? Thank you.

    Hello and Welcome! I have been working with hospice for the last year and can't imagine myself doing anything else. Although difficult at times its so rewarding. I enjoy the one on one time I get with my patients. Visit the hospice forum!
