Nursing students Receive First-Hand Hospice Experience at Silverado

9/24/2013
Location : South Houston Hospice

By Silverado Staff Writer

At Silverado Hospice, we know it's important to cultivate the next generation of talent. That's one of the reason why we regularly welcome nursing students from Houston Baptist University to learn from our team.

Students receive valuable instruction in care of the dying through clinical rotation with Silverado Hospice staff.

These clinical experiences are learning opportunities in which students provide nursing care to patients under the direct supervision of experienced hospice nurses. During their clinical rotation with hospice they grow in their understanding of the needs of dying patients and their families.

Since dying is seen as a natural part of life by hospice staff, nursing students learn not to fear the experience and how to promote comfort care - no matter the setting they choose at the conclusion of their educational experience.
