Hospice Nurses

End of life care and nursing care doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Yet rarely are the perspectives of nurses and caretakers put into the mainstream. So I would like to post a few stories from hospice nurses and other healthcare providers to get their perspective on an uncomfortable subject we all have to face.

NPR – A Nurse Reflects on the Privilege of Caring for Dying Patients
