:nurse:I am a 52 year old RN who left Hospice 3 years ago because I was tired of the call/weekend/holiday issues. I miss the work a lot,and tried to fill that void with being involved on the volunteer level.I switched to school nursing, which of course has INCREDIBLE hours , very good hourly pay and no holidays/weekends/call etc. It also has very minimal sense of personal reward. I took the job figuring it would be a job I could do into retirement. I have TRIED to make the job better, but I still miss hospice nursing. I know that I may not be able to do (home) Hospice nursing till I retire, but I figure I could still probably have several great years left. I am in pretty good health, with the exception of some hip bursitis and rotator cuff problems. I have been offered a position with minimal call/weekend requirements . As I remember, most of the Hospice nurses I worked with were in their 30's or 40's. I would love input from others in my age range,about the challenges/joys/tips that are different with our age group. Thank you .
