how long do i have to go to college to be a hospice nurse
#college. would i need a doctors degree or associates or bachelors degree?
In order to become a Hospice Nurse, you would need to have a BSN which is a Bachelors degree in general nursing. You can also go another route which would be graduating from a State approved program in vocational nursing. Hope this helps :)
