A nurse is defined as a person who cares for the sick or infirm. Infirm (for anyone else who didn't know) is defined as being of poor or deteriorated vitality. In our opinion, hospice nurses rank highest among the most grueling and difficult nursing professions. With such a challenging job of caring for the dying, we wondered why on earth anyone would choose to be a hospice nurse. So, we asked one - Sandy Bowen from Heart N' Home Hospice and Palliative Care of Fruitland, Idaho. Sandy was kind enough to open up about her life and experiences with hospice nursing. This is her story.
