View Full Version : Hospice Nursing

Apologies - I am not. a Nurse, nor a student. However, I figured this would be the best place to ask my question. I am currently writing a story involving a girl aspiring to be a Hospice Nurse. She's currently in college, preparing for this job. I was wondering - what are the steps to becoming a Hospice Nurse? What degrees would you need, what kind of classes would you take...
Also, aside from that, I would appreciate any tips on exactly what hospice nursing is like. I am aware hospice nurses sometimes work in their patient's homes, but is it always that way? Do Hospice Nurses work for particular hospitals? What happens when their patents die? What are the roles they play in their patient's life?
Thank you ahead of time!
