Joann Bruno Rod Faircloth After 26 years as a Registered Nurse JoAnn is still very dedicated as the first day she started nursing school. While working in the ICU recovering heart patients JoAnn is at her best. She takes pride in being considered a specialty nurse. The word “burn out" is not in her vocabulary. Each day she wakes up excited about the challenges the day will bring. She continually researches and stays well informed on the latest technology in the cardiac field. As she shares her day with me there are smiles along with great stories of the experience of caring for her patients. She gets to know her patients very well and takes interest of their life story. She does the same with the families and speaks of them as if she has known them forever. Then there are days of tears. When I first asked her how she deals with losing a patient, I was impressed with her response. After 26 years on the job, she told me she finds a quiet private place and cries. She then wipes her tears away and gathers herself to check on her next patient and delivers the best care without missing a beat. At that moment she became my hero and I gained the upmost respect for her field. If there was an individual who you wanted to be an ambassador for all nurses; JoAnn would be that individual. The toll of the job is becoming apparent but, she marches on with great enthusiasm. She walks about 6 plus miles a day during her 12 hour shift. She is a great mentor to new nurses that come onboard. Where others lack JoAnn is there to pick them up and deliver the best care to all her patients. Like her hospital motto Human Kindness she delivers that care each and every day. She practices it off the job as well. I was able to witness her dedication and human kindness on our flight to Hawaii few weeks ago. We had an hour and a half till will landed in Oahu. JoAnn had just woken up while the flight crew was announcing they had a medical emergency on board. JoAnn without any hesitation made herself know to flight crew that she was a nurse. The flight crew then brought her to the front of the plane where the victim was. Turns out the man was wearing a CPAP mask and did not take his meds before the flight. It was a red eye flight and he was not able to sleep and complained of neck pain. JoAnn was able to assess that he was not in any immediate danger and communicate it to flight crew. She stayed with him and comforted him until it was time to prepare for landing. Once on the ground EMS got him off the plane and checked him out. Thankfully it turned out ok for him. Simply put she is an amazing nurse because she is an amazing woman. I am proud and fortunate to have her in my life and I think of all the lives she has touched who would say the same. 
Terry J. Bryant Heidi Fields This donation in your Honor is to acknowledge the nurse who has made the greatest impact and genuine contribution to the nurse I am today. Thank you for being a wonderful mentor and leader and always guiding me when I need direction.

Jayme Severson Beverley Williamson Not only does she serve her patients beyond her responsibility, providing housing for those patients loved ones who are financially exhausted, she cares for their health needs. She has nursed her mother through two brushes with death, hospitalizations, chemo treatments, doctor visits, and trips to specialists. All the while working, being a wife and mother herself. She does not realize her true beauty and worth.

St. Patrick Hospital ICU Nurses Amy Pickett Thanks to the St Patrick Hospital ICU nurses in Missoula, MT, my mother, Jamie, was well taken care of before she passed away in 2007. While it wasn't the only reason I went into nursing, it did serve as an inspiration to me to become a nurse. My sister and I are both RNs now. We both know that taking care of our mom was part of the job, but it's comforting to know that she was in caring hands in the end. Thank you.

Tamara Yates Anonymous Donor In Honor of one of the hardest working Nurse I know, Tami Yates. Tami is the Nurse Education Consultant for the Immunizations and Infections disease program at the Ohio Department of Health, she also works part time at a Pediatric Associates as a back office nurse. Tami is an influential member of many groups such as Ohio Adolescent Health Partnership, Adult Immunization Action Coalition of Central Ohio, Ohio Partners for Cancer Control, she also works on various committees at the Ohio Department of Health and Ohio Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. She put herself through nursing school as a single mother and is now currently working on her 3rd degree a Master’s degree in Nursing. She is one of the most reliable and accountable people I have had the pleasure to work with. Her passion for nursing exudes from the work she does. When she provides an educational training or speaking at a seminar or conference you can see it in her, she truly loves nursing and especially immunizations. As part of her position at ODH she created the State of Ohio Immunization Protocol Manual, she works with school nurses, pediatric practices, local health departments and other medical offices by providing trainings and assisting with monitoring of Vaccine for Children Vaccines . Throughout her time with the Ohio Department of Health she has worked diligently to help increase the immunization rates of all children and adults in the state. She works on the CNE committee at the Ohio Department of Health, and she also worked with Professional Development Staff at Nationwide Children’s Hospital to provide employee education seminars. She has participated in the State of Ohio National Guard Care Event, in which they provide free health care services to anyone in need free of charge. She is willing to do anything and everything to make sure the job gets done, and is always willing to help cover in any area that needs it. I am sure the work that she has done has definitely impacted more than we know. Tami has also precepted a number of new nurses in the pediatric field, both in a hospital and public health setting. The following statement was made by the Director of Communications and Immunizations at OAAP, “Ms. Yates has a command of a subject that can be very difficult to teach during a time that is very crucial in Ohio for health care workers to understand and encourage parents to vaccinate their children. She teaches with confidence that creates a trustworthy relationship with her audience and she continues to be a very important partner for my organization. I am confident her work has helped improve the health of many children in this state”. This is just one of the many complements she has received. She is a great nurse who just loves what she does and does it well. Like all nurses she not only takes care of patients, but she takes care of everyone around her. She is the mother of daughter Hailey and has 2 step children Mick and Allyson. She lives in Reynoldsburg, Ohio with her other half Tony and their 3 dogs. If you have the pleasure of ever meeting her you will have been blessed to meet such an angel in disguise. She deserves recognition not just for nurse’s day, but every day for being such a wonderful caring human being.
