Featured Nurse

Dana Erskine-Pando, BSN, FNP

Dana Erskine-Pando, BSN, FNP, was born and raised in Michigan, but was drawn to the warmer climates of the United States.  She moved to North Carolina to be near her brother.  While there, she attended North Carolina Central University where she earned her BSN in 1997 and began her nursing career with a local hospital in North Carolina.  After two years, she became a travel nurse and worked in hospital ICU’s and ER’s in Georgia, Florida, and Hawaii.  She fell in love with Hawaii and decided to stay, working for Tripler Army Medical Center in their surgical ICU and then later, as the clinical nurse coordinator on an artificial blood project for the military.  After returning to the “mainland” after several years in Hawaii, Dana earned her Family Nurse Practitioner degree from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2009.

In Hawaii, she met Amy Bosich, founder of Flying Nurses International, and became a flight nurse for the company.  Amy would leave the business in Dana’s capable hands when she needed a well-deserved vacation and Dana became completely familiar with all aspects of the day to day running of the company.  She became a full-time coordinator in 2001. When Dana relocated to the mainland, still very much involved with Flying Nurses, she also worked at Mayo Clinic in the transplant/surgical ICU as a charge nurse.  Flying Nurses moved their corporate offices to Florida, and as Amy’s fatal illness progressed, Dana stepped in to manage Flying Nurses and is now the Chief Operations Officer, carrying on Amy’s legacy of superior care and compassion for our clients.   She still flies an occasional case as her busy schedule allows, in order to keep her vision sharp as to the needs of the patients and the nurses who care for them.

Along with the daily work needed to maintain and run the company, Dana also works per diem for a very busy oncology practice.  She cares for her two elderly parents who live with her, and her four horses and beloved pit bull, Zeus.  When she isn’t working on her farm, she loves to waterski and snowboard, and travel all over the world.  But Flying Nurses is her calling, and she devotes all her considerable skill and knowledge to making sure each client is moved safely, comfortably, and compassionately.  She is an indispensable asset to Flying Nurses International.
