I am new to hospice as well and as a new ARNP will be taking call. Everyone recommended a resource :Symptom Management Algorithms: A Handbook for Palliative Care / Edition 3 but it is super expensive. Does anyone have a used one at a reasonable cost?

As a new oncall ARNP, this resource was recommended _ Symptom Management Algorithms: A Handbook for Palliative Care / Edition 3. It is out of print and priced out of most new grad's reach. Does anyone have one that they could sell at a reasonable cost? What other resources would you recommend?? There are over 750 patients and although I will have MD backup it will be busy with night and weekend calls when the MD's are not in.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. What I have been exposed to so far has been a great group of people with a heart for their patients not see before in over 10 years of nursing.

Per diem is the ONLY way to work for hospice. You get paid for every hour that you work. They work staff nurses to death. It's the same everywhere. I work as a traveller, which is the only way I would take a case load. I get paid for every hour I work.
