my best advice to you is to listen & be informed. how you view death & afterlife has everything in the world to do with your upcoming experience. if you approach it with sensitivity and view it as something sacred that you have been allowed to participate in, it can change your life forever! the most amazing death that i have ever experienced was my first hospice death(not my first patient death). several years later i read the book "final gifts" by maggie callanan & patricia kelley(the book was so intriguing i read it in one day). i was amazed at how this precious patient had communicated with me during his final hours on this earth, using symbolic language and how common this phenomena is. such an incredible experience, i have never looked at death the same since. good luck with your rotation!
