The Life of a Hospice Nurse
Jena Ruehl was living in Columbus, Ohio, and visited her hometown, Cincinnati, because her grandmother was dying. A friend told her VITAS Healthcare was hiring and suggested she apply. She knew very little about hospice care.
“I just thought hospice was the last week, last couple of days of someone's life,” Jena recalls. “So I didn't know if I wanted to work with hospice, if I'd really enjoy that or not. But I thought I would give it a try and I've been here ever since and I love it!”
Four years ago, Erika Avila had already made the move to hospice when she attended a job fair. She applied for a position at VITAS and was hired the next day.
“I accepted the job with VITAS because, besides the many benefits they offer, VITAS allows me one-on-one time with my patients. And I believe in their values, that we take care of each other, patients and families come first and we make a difference.”
