What's it like nursing at a children's hospice?

"It’s a such a homely, welcoming environment to work in and it’s very different from a hospital because you get to do all sorts of fun activities. The care is all nurse-led so you get a lot of autonomy and there’s always opportunities to take on different responsibilities and learn new skills"
