Every day, a growing number of dedicated nurses care for aging adults and people with complex medical needs inside their homes, administering daily medications, providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness, and managing personalized plans of care.
To pay tribute to the specialized and tireless work of thousands of nurses throughout the network, BrightStar Care launched a national Nurse of the Year program to recognize the nurses who are working hard to deliver A Higher Standard of Home Care each and every day.
This year, our Licensed Practical Nurse Devin Gardner, who works as a school nurse, was nominated. Here is the nomination letter about Devin:
It is with great pleasure to nominate Devin for the BrightStar Care Nurse of the Year 2015. Devin was hired as an aid in August of 2010 and, with persistence and tireless hours, she has become an admirable LPN.
