Katie has worked many years with Hospice and developed a strong love for her patients. She truly cares for them, their families, and her students. Katie also teaches at a University.
When she received a late night call from the wife of a patient who was recently diagnosed with cancer, Katie arrived within minutes. She made it a priority to make this patient as comfortable as possible. Katie then had to explain to his wife that he would not make it through the night and she would be there until the end.
Katie came to get his wife, and let her know that that she could climb in bed with her husband and be with him through the night until he passed. Katie stayed close by in the room, going above the call for the patient’s care and his spouse. Katie loves her job as a nurse, and teaching others how to be the kind of nurse to be proud of.
