A stressful environment, but can be rewarding
Nurse (Current Employee) – Berea, KY – May 15, 2017
Hospice care is a stressful field with a very quick pace of patients admitted and dying. This makes it a tough environment to work in right off the top, but add in the not-for-profit board constantly changing, never ending regulations, money shortfalls and employee turnover in a constant training situation, and things are even worse. With these issues aside you can also feel personal reward for the work hospice does in the community and the prestige that comes with being associated with a well-respected organization. The pay cannot be very competitive, so the board tries to compensate with time off benefits.
Great Time-off benefits, decent insurance.
Stressful, Constant state of change
