Dana Human, Admissions Nurse
I have been a hospice nurse in various positions for almost 22 years. I found my passion when my own mother passed away when I was in my 20s. Hospice was still more of a “grass roots” service.
Even though I was in nursing school at the time, I had never even heard of hospice. Neither the hospital, or doctors ever mentioned this as an option. The painful, and very overwhelming care required of a dying loved one without assistance from professionals was indescribable. I vowed that if I found a better way I would be part of the solution for terminally ill people. I found my calling in 1995 and have not looked back since.
I love to read, listen to classical music and enjoy time with my nieces and nephew.
