1998 Nissan Pathfinder Rear End Bounces When Braking

I have a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder with approximately 218,000 miles. What are some of the causes of a nose diving vehicle? When I apply my breaks (even gently) and the vehicle comes to a complete halt, the rear end of my vehicle shifts toward the front and causes a loud thump. It appears as though I have been rear-ended by another vehicle. What could this be? Thank you for your attention and assistance. I look forward to your reply.
