A local Hospice nurse has opened up about what makes her job so rewarding in celebration of International Nurses' Day this week.
Beth Scarcelli qualified in 2019 and joined Hospice in October the same year.
She moved to Jersey in October 2019, from England, and says she has loved living and work here since.
She says: "I have currently been in my role at Hospice for one year and seven months, completing my preceptorship and learning about palliative care. I love being a nurse, especially at Hospice, and this week we celebrated International Nurses’ Day. Here are five things I love about nursing..."

As Hospice nurses we have the privilege of caring for those at the end of their lives - we care for the patient and their family in that moment and it is an honour to be present at that time.

At Hospice, no two days are the same, and we all need support with different elements of our job.
What I love about being a nurse especially at Hospice, is that we all support one another whether that's emotionally or sharing knowledge.

Each nurse has a different approach and has knowledge and experience to share.
I love that nurses want to share this knowledge with each other and are passionate about learning from one another.

I love that as a nurse I see all sorts of people, of all ages, at different stages of their lives. I love that I learn something new from each and every one of those that I care for.

I love being a Hospice nurse, however many people believe the sole reason people come to Hospice is to die.
I like being able to let people know that there are many reasons why people come to Hospice and that end of life care is just one of the ways we support our patients and their loved ones.
