My daughter in law is currently in school for nursing also! It means so much to families to have someone in their corner in a sometimes scary time! Way to go!! Great Job!!

  6. Congrats on this award Michelle. I too am proud to have worked with you. You are a great clinician and I am glad that you are Nurse of the year. You definitely deserve it!

  7. Congratulations to you Michelle !! I have had the pleasure of working with you the past 14 years, and can say first hand that I always appreciate your expertise and willingness to really listen to the nurses when we have a patient with pain. You are a great advocate for our patients and are very deserving of the Honor of Nurse of the Year !

  8. Congratulations, Michelle!!! I am so happy for you to receive this very well-deserved award. I was lucky enough to be mentored by Michelle when I first came to Children’s and worked on the infant med-surg unit. Later, after I went to the O.R., I had intermittent contact with this excellent nurse and wonderfully kind, intelligent, and hard-working person. Even now, after having been retired for the past 7 years, I have fond memories of you, Michelle. I am so glad, but not surprised, that you are being recognized with this award. And to Lynn Rusy, great job of doing a wonderful write-up for Michelle! Hi to all my friends in the O.R.

  9. Congratulations Michelle!! I was so happy to learn of this latest honor you rec’d! YOu are not only nurse of the year, but nurse of many fortunate kids and co-worker of many grateful persons like myself who get to collaborate with you on a daily basis for the past 20+ years! You are a blessing to many and I’m honored to say I’ve worked with the Nurse of the year!

  10. Congratulations Michelle. Though I’ve you peripherally, you’ve had a major Impact on many patients through the years. I’m sure you’ll recall the variance of opinions that we’ve had, but I always respected the interest you had in the patients you saw. You certainly represented the matrix of the Pain Program. I was blessed to have been able to work with many superbly qualified nurses through the years, which not only made my life more bearable, allowed me to be assured that my patients were in very capable hands in my absence and through the years became dear colleagues and friends.
