Tip This Week- Palliative and Hospice Care for Nurses Part 1

This week’s episode segment comes from a special program created for the Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future (DiscoverNursing.com) as an audio addition to their award winning Nursing Notes monthly e-newsletter. In this episode from June 2011, I got the chance to interview several nurses working in the hospice and palliative nursing field about their very special nurse specialty. On this episode are Pamela Johnson, a certified Hospice and Palliative Care nurse and Director of Clinical Services at Odyssey Hospice in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Betty Ferrell, a certified registered nurse and principal investigator of the End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium known as “ELNEC,”  and Todd Hultman, an ACHPN and president of the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association in Boston, Massachusetts.

Check out the links below for more information on hospice and palliative nursing care and this nurse specialty. You can also sign up for the Nursing Notes monthly e-newsletter and get the updates and info every month on nursing specialties, special updates on nursing scholarships and other opportunities for existing and student nurses.
