A Career Serving Hospice Patients

Tiffany has substantial experience in end-of-life care and has personally served in each role that she now supervises including hospice aide, LPN, Registered Nurse and Triage nurse.
A native Oklahoman, Tiffany knew, at an early age, that she wanted to work with the elderly. She began to volunteer at an area long-term care facility when she was only 15 years old and later became a hospice aide. While working for hospice, she earned her credentials and became a registered nurse.
In addition to work, Tiffany devotes herself to family and community activities. She and her husband, Brian Gordon, live in Mannford.
The NEO-HPNA is part of a national organization that boasts nearly 11,000 members. Established in 1986, the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association is the only nursing organization of its kind. It is part of the Alliance for Excellence in Hospice and Palliative Nursing which includes the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Foundation and the National Board for Certification of Hospice and Palliative Nurses. Together, the organizations are working to lead the way in the advancement of the rapidly growing and increasingly important palliative care nursing specialty.
