Hospice and Palliative Nurse

Sponsored by the Hospice & Palliative Nurses Association

Welcome

A Hospice Nurse cares for patients at the end of their lives. Their main responsibility is to help people live as comfortably and independently as possible and with the least amount of pain, in their final days. One of the largest parts of being a Hospice Nurse involves helping patients, and their families, feel more comfortable about death and providing them with the emotional support they need.
