End-of-life care is one of the most important roles of the nurse. There is no time more vulnerable nor critical for patients and families. As Americans age at a rapid pace, end-of-life care has become and will remain a major role of any nurse working within the hospital setting, and has even been integrated into many palliative care settings.
