I agree wholeheartedly with what everyone has said. I've been in hospice for three years...and I believe it is a calling. All the nurses that I've worked with truly want to be doing this kind of work.
But I must admit, I've been told by a few nurses that I work along side that I'm young (I'm 38) and somehow that has a bearing on my abilities as a hospice nurse (???). It is age discrimination...but I don't let it get to me.
Melissa...good luck to you...I think you'd make a great hospice nurse...your heart is in the right place!
