I am a fairly new FNP with 13 years Nursing experience in LTC/MS/PCU and lastly, ICU before and during the pandemic so needless to say, I have been exposed to A LOT of death/dying/compassionate weaning throughout my nursing career. I am set to start a new position with smaller Hospice company next week, and this will be my very first NP job 😲
Naturally, I'm anxious about going from an "expert RN" to a novice NP so I want to make sure I hit the ground running when orientation is over and it's time to see patients.
What are some good resources I should have on-hand? Anything you suggest that will help me better understand and better care for my patients? Obviously not asking HOW to be a Hospice NP, but rather, just trying to get a feel for what resources I should get a hold of in order to effectively prepare?...Thanks in advance!
