With a special passion and interest in end-of-life care, UC Davis Health assistant nurse manager Hillary Tucker has looked at how different units across UC Davis Medical Center process and cope with death – how best to deliver resources to staff on managing those situations.

Listen to Hillary’s story, in her own words.

In celebration of Florence Nightingale's 200th birthday, 2020 is the Year of the Nurse. Beginning on National Nurses Week (May 6-12) and continuing throughout the year, a special blog will feature the stories, memories and motivations of UC Davis Health nurses.

Hear their words, and get to know why and how they invest such heart, passion, expertise and commitment in their life-changing work.
