Hospice LPNs provide care to patients when a disease, such as advanced cancer, gets to the point when treatment can no longer cure or control it. The hospice LPN follows the RN’s plan of care to manage the patient’s symptoms so that a person’s last days may be spent comfortably, with dignity and quality, and surrounded by their loved ones. Hospice LPNs may work either on shifts, assisting one patient for several hours at a time or intermittently, traveling to care for several patients in one day. They provide regular visits to patients to help with the administration of medications, provide care, ensure the patient has adequate supplies, and anything else the patients or their families may need.
Travel nursing can be an exciting and rewarding career, especially for those who are excited about experiencing new places and meeting new people. There are many benefits to working as a travel hospice LPNs, such as an increased income, professional development opportunities, and gaining experience in areas outside of your own geographic region.
