Hospice Nurse, Cydney Alvarado

I was eager to talk to Cydney Alvarado because I've always been curious to know what a hospice nurse does. I mean, I was reading Elizabeth Kubler Ross's, On Death and Dying at age 13. I never said I was normal! As a float nurse. Cydney got exposure to many different specialties, which helped her tremendously in her role as a hospice nurse, which she says has become her favorite nursing specialty. She explains the details about the people she cares for, opening a case, symptom management, her autonomy, and some very common misconceptions. She is acutely aware of her empathic nature and tells us how she guards against compassion fatigue while practicing what she says is her heartbreaking joy. In the five-minute snippet: Baby Shark, doo doo, doo, doo, doo doo. For Cydney's bio and bookshop, see links below!
