I had 6 mos of nursing experience when I was hired to work as a hospice RN. I spent 1 mo shadowing the case managers and assisting when possible. Fortunately I had a supervisor who was just a phone call away so I never felt like I was all alone. I've been working on call for 2 mos now and love it. Once your learn which meds to administer to control sxs and master the art of changing a foley, you're good to go. Hospice is more about educating the family regarding pt care and how to handle the stress of caring for the pt. I had no prior experience in changing foleys before I started hospice, but let me just say, it's much easier than starting an IV any day.
