Nursing is more than a job—it’s a calling. Ask any Assured Home Health & Hospice nurse and they will proudly tell you what is means to practice caring. For more than 68,000 nurses across the state of Washington, even when a shift ends, compassion and concern for their patients continues. Nurses impact our lives 365 days a year, 7 days a week. From a pediatric nurse treating a child with flu symptoms at 9:00 a.m., to an emergency department nurse caring for an accident victims at 3:00 a.m., to a hospice nurse providing round-the-clock care and comfort for a patient at the end-of-life —nurses make a profound difference.

“Nurses are entrusted with caring for our patients and their families during some of the most difficult times of their lives. I take honor and privilege everyday working with exceptional nursing teams who give their very best to hospice patients, their families, and our community.” -Jenny Collins, Visiting Nurses Executive Director
