24/7 Hospice Nurse

Being a hospice nurse supervisor requires 24/7 mind, body and spirit.  You have the pleasure of overseeing the care of patients approaching end of life.  You have the luxury of meeting families that are going through a very difficult time.  My goal is to share my knowledge and experience with other nurses in hopes that our hospice patients and families will have some of the burdens relieved and experience good days for as many days as they can.

Ever since I had my first clinical exposure, I knew I wanted to be in hospice/palliative care. I just don't know where to start. I already have my bachelor's. But I'm stuck. I'm doing private care now. Not sure whether to take nurse practitioner or palliative nursing. What would you advise?
