Celebrating Nurses | Shirley Vitela

Abode Hospice & Home Health is celebrating nurses during the month of May! Meet Shirley and learn about her passion when it comes to nursing as she shares her “why.”

Why nursing? I firmly believe it is my calling. I went back to school as an adult who was working in finance, a Registered Investment Advisor with a Series 7 commodities license. Once I started working in healthcare, I no longer felt like a square peg in a round hole and truly felt I had found what I was hardwired to do. Having worked in multiple areas of Nursing, I am so grateful to have made my way to the very special service of Hospice. It is remarkably fulfilling to assist patients and families during a very sacred time. I feel so blessed to love my work.
