“Elise is the kind of nurse you imagine when you think of what a nurse should be. She has such a big heart. She truly cares for her patients and treats them as if they are family.
“In June 2018, Elise was taking care of a patient that was admitted into the ICU on her birthday. Elise had her room decorated while she was out for a CT scan. Not only did she decorate the room, but she went to the gift shop to buy her patient balloons and a teddy bear! I am nominating Elise because this act of kindness is not isolated. She does this sort of thing routinely!”
Elise was honored with a surprise celebration on the unit before her leaders, peers, and members of the Professional Nursing Practice Council.
