  Early Career Challenge:  How to Care for Your Dying Patient, the Patient's Family-- and Yourself
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.
