Palliative Care for Nursing Assistants

Licensed practical nurses in palliative care monitor vital signs, see to nutrition, administer medications, change dressings and provide comfort to people at the end of life or those who are most severely deprived of their independence. This is a very rewarding and essential job that suits empathetic, discreet and vigilant people. A job as a licensed practical nurse in palliative care requires excellent physical condition, good listening skills, initiative and good judgment.
