@GEB16 I worked in hospice for two years out of NP school. I was full-time. I will answer your Qs individually below.
More or less, yes. I would start looking at charts at 06:00 in the home but after an hour, I would take 1.5 hours to eat breakfast, get ready, etc., and I'd see my last patient at 15:00 most of the time. As long as I fulfilled my hours, at least at my agency it didn't matter when I worked (although they discouraged crazy after-hours, I did it anyway).
Until I got used to the job, my work/life balance wasn't great. Thankfully as an NP, I had better control over my schedule than the RNs did.
For a starting job, my pay was great. It paid more than a clinic job that I had applied for, and since I was hourly, any OT was time and a half.
I did not have to be on call or work holidays.
I also served as attending provider--that's what brings in the money, because we can bill. Anything else was not billable. Mileage was paid for but at less than the Federal rate (which, btw, is only a suggestion; your employer doesn't have to match it). My supervisor was not onsite, which had its pluses and minuses.
If you have any more questions, I'd be happy to help.
