Meet Your Trainer: Elisabeth Almerini, RN
"I am one of those people who always wanted to be a nurse, but I was never sure which area of nursing I wanted to pursue. The first patient I cared for while working as a nurse’s aide showed me my path. The head nurse asked me to sit with a woman with no family who was dying. The nurse walked me to the woman’s room, then shut the door. Not knowing what to do, I simply held her hand and spoke with her about her life, with its ups and downs, and listened to her tell her final story. Being able to bring a sense of peace and calm to this lonely and frightened person was the essence of what I wanted to do as a nurse and caring for the dying became my focus.
I received my BSN from the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC and began working in a Geriatric unit at Mount Sinai Medical Center in NYC. I continued caring for cancer and AIDS patients at Monmouth Medical Center in NJ, then found my dream job at the Visiting Nurse Association of Central Jersey Hospice, comforting patients in their homes for as long as their care necessitates, building relationships for months or years. As a Certified Hospice and Palliative Nurse, I help the dying and their families by educating them on what to expect through this process, explaining and supporting their choices for end of life care and providing emotional support. Becoming an End of Life Doula and founding Leaving Peacefully was a logical choice, as I can provide more in depth and personal care to my private clients. I also founded the Monmouth County Death Café, which has been meeting monthly for four years in order to provide a space for the public to talk about death and dying and all it entails. Being able to share my knowledge by educating End of Life doulas is a joy."
