Nursing Excellence Award

I received my award yesterday from WRHA (Winnipeg Hospital Authority)
and The HSC where I work.
It was an awesome ceremony
and I was touched by the reasons behind the award,
by those that nominated me and what was said about me.
I walked up to recieve my award and one of my collegues yelled out
"We love you Vanessa"
I was so touched
it took all of me not to cry
my head was 30 shades of red
I am so proud :)and so happy about all the aspects of my life
life is good
thanks for comin by

Many congrats Vanessa, I use to practice as a nurse and we never had anything like that it would have been awesome. I use to feel really proud if I got a card from one off the patients as it would make me feel I'd done my job well. Sadly things seem to have gone to pot here in the UK as I was a patient last year and must say I was appauld by the standards of care on the ward it made me feel ashamed to say I was a qualified nurse especially when a staff nurse and a support worker had a full scale stand up row in the middle of the ward about who would give a bed bath. Its good to know standards still reign high some where and you must be one of the best Go Girl let others strive to meet your standards!
