  1. How do we do what we do?

    I've been a hospice nurse for five years, and what I often tell them when they ask, is, it is a privilege, to be part of such a sacred time. I cannot imagine anything more meaningful then easing someone's passing. To remove pain and fear. I often ...
  2. Extreme anxiety

  3. just got an offer as a hospice nurse

    congrats! I'm a fairly new grad, and I LOVE the job. I agree with rose... compassion. Some nights you come home so drained, but you almost NEVER go home feeling that you didn't help someone in a very daunting part of their life. I did hospital nu...
  4. What is your Hospice paying for mileage

    that's what we're getting too. I've often thought with all the gas jumps that it should go up to .65.
  5. Life as a New Grad Sucks

    I LOVE this! Don't apologize! You even said you were venting. I am right there with you! One year after graduating and no work. Unless I want to do home health which my back is not up to. And quite frankly, it's a little too isolated. (yes I d...

    I always apply to RN I (zero to one yr exp) and RN II (one-two yrs exper). If they ask for 3 or more years I won't. The job I did have, briefly, was an RN II job listing.

  11. Job helps for us new grads!

    It's a long story, but to put it briefly, I just wasn't up to their standards. This particular hospital is known for firing for that reason. It's just tougher there. I don't think you generally have to worry about it bc hospitals don't want to p...
  12. Job helps for us new grads!

    yeah, if you are applying out of state, you can't do much. You can send a personal letter. That helped me in particular with the job I did get. And don't you upload your resume? The resume I upload has the watermark. If you are copy/pasting then...
