Advanced practice registered nurses have a unique skill set ideally suited to working with terminally ill patients receiving hospice services. Hospice advanced practice registered nurses have the opportunity to work to the full extent of their potential while providing compassionate care to dying individuals and their families. They work across setting from home, nursing home, and hospice unit. In order to keep patients in these settings, they must understand the range of treatments and interventions that can offer patients the best symptom managment and quality of life. The work is challenging, but nurses who can master the necessary skills will ultimately reap the benefit of deep personal and professional growth.
