Celebrating Nurses | Stephanie Shepherd

Premier Hospice & Home Health is celebrating nurses during the month of May! Meet Stephanie and learn about her passion for nursing as she explains her “why.”

I love being a nurse for many reasons, but mostly because my joy comes from caring for others, and the trust that develops with that relationship. My patients fill my bucket on a daily basis. In return, I help them pass with dignity and comfort. It is a true honor to provide this type of care at such a vulnerable time in someone’s life.

I have been a Nurse with Premier Hospice, Fort Wayne for 2 years. Premier’s mission statement includes words such as support, caring for others, and living life fully and comfortably. Premier does truly stand behind that mission statement and allows their employees to go above and beyond.

There can are really good days, and there can be very hard days, but when you remember why we do what we do.. it’s always worth it.
