Early Career Challenge:
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.
Register now to receive a free gift, a special e-book, "Moral Distress and You."
A situation heavy with emotion as well as unique ethical and clinical practice requirements, caring for a dying patient can test even seasoned nurses. This live, free, interactive 90-minute webinar will help all early career RNs be better prepared to care for dying patients, the patient's family and for themselves – regardless of work setting or specialty.
