Celebrating Nurses | Destin Ellison

Hospice of North Alabama is celebrating nurses during the month of May! Meet Destin and learn about her passion for nursing as she explains her “why.”

I believe I was called at a young age to become a hospice nurse. At 17, I lost my pawpaw to cancer. The hospice nurse was there through it all and provided so much comfort for my family and me. I craved to be that comfort for someone else.

At the age of 21, I became an RN, and a year later I entered my dream job of being a hospice nurse. I have been doing it for 7 years since. I have been with HNA since 2016, and I could not imagine a better company to work for.”

Destin adds at the end: “If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life.” -Marc Anthony
