Requirements for Working in the Hospice Care Industry

Our Nurse Case Managers require a Registered Nurse (RN) license. At Healing Care Hospice, we use only RN’s for case management because we believe it improves care quality considerably. We are comfortable hiring recent graduates because we provide extensive training, mentorship, and oversight before they enter the field.

We utilize Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN) for four distinct roles.

  1. LVN Runners make unscheduled visits during the day or after-hours during nights and weekends when our offices are closed.
  2. Continuous Care LVN’s are stationed at a patient’s home for eight-hour shifts to address out-of-control, intractable symptoms.
  3. Clinical Liaisons meet families referred to our service, explain the scope of our services, and guide them through what they can expect from our company.
  4. Support roles for LVN’s in the office include telephone triage on the weekends, quality assurance, and palliative care.

Position Eligibility Requirements

Our social workers are required to have either a Master’s degree in Social Work or be Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW).

Our hospice aides are required to have either a Home Health Aide (HHA) license, or a Certified Nursing Assistance (CNA) license.

Alternatively, there are numerous support positions available in the office that do not require a license at all. These positions include team coordinators, scheduling coordinators, office manager, receptionist, instructional designers, and human resources.

Lastly, if you are interested in hospice care, you can volunteer with us in the office, or you can visit our patients in their homes and make a difference in their lives.
