Early Career Challenge:

How to Care for Your Dying Patient, the Patient's Family
-- and Yourself
Live, free, interactive, 90-minute online webinar
December 5, 2019
1 pm EST  (12 pm CST)

Ask any experienced RN about their first time caring for a dying patient and they will almost certainly remember the circumstances – and the challenges.  Caring for dying patients and their families – or dealing with the aftermath of a patient dying suddenly – can be one of the most difficult experiences during your early years as an RN.
