November honors those who provide end-of-life care with National Hospice and Palliative Care Month. Many nurses in this specialty say the work is emotionally and physically rigorous at times, but an incredibly gratifying area of nursing.

National Hospice and Palliative Care Month focuses attention on the caregivers who are able to help patients and their loved ones navigate the end of life with dignity, companionship, and as much comfort as possible. These nurses can practice in various settings–a healthcare facility, nursing home, or private home.
