Finding My Purpose as a Hospice Nurse
Published June 20, 2023

Dawn joined our hospice team about four years ago, looking for a change. She found her purpose. As an Aveanna Hospice nurse, Dawn provides excellent care for her patients and their families, guiding and supporting them through a sacred time of transition.

I was looking for something new and different, and a good friend of mine was a hospice nurse. My friend encouraged me to apply because she felt like my personality matched what a good hospice nurse looked like. I'm so glad that I took the leap and became a hospice nurse because I absolutely love it!

I’m honored to assist my patients and their families on this new journey as their loved one transitions from life. Though it may be a difficult journey, I get the opportunity to answer their unknown questions, hold their hands, and let them know they are not alone. Our team is here to assist and support them along this journey.

To be a part of Aveanna means being a team player, being the best person I can be every day, being supportive of what our company goals and values are, and doing my part to let families know that Aveanna is one of the best hospice agencies out there. It means that I am committed to delivering high quality care to every patient and family. It also means that I always want to make sure that I respect each patient and family and protect their dignity.
