Yes from home. All you need is an internet connection and headphones (and some free software) and you dial in to the classes which typically meet once weekly. I do miss the personal interaction, but not worth driving 150 miles (one way) to have it. It's a great set up really.

Hi and welcome to All Nurses !
Hospice can be demanding and rewarding at the same time. The days are unpredictable like many other areas in nursing. Like the previous poster stated, some visits can take a lot longer than expected. Just please keep that in mind, especially if you are working on a day you have classes.
All the best,
Hospital administration is partly to blame for this nonsense. It all started to go downhill when hospitals began to refer to patients as "customers." They are successfully turning the healthcare industry into "customer service" industry, and we all know the slogan, "the customer is always right." UGH.... I truly believe we (healthcare workers) have lost respect from the general population because of this.
Unfortunately, I'm not at all surprised to see this nonsense app created.
