H.E.R.O. Nurse Service Award Winners Announced

Ansell recently announced the winners of the 4th annual U.S. Ansell Cares H.E.R.O. (Heal. Educate. Reach. Overcome.) Nurse Service Award. The award serves to recognize nurses who have made lasting impressions on their peers, patients, profession and communities.

Nurses from around the country were nominated by friends, family, colleagues, and patients, followed by a voting period. In recognition of their accomplishments, 10 winners received a H.E.R.O. Nurse Service Award plaque and certificate, a nursing reference book of their choice, and will have their story profiled online. In addition, the top vote recipient of the 10 winners will receive a donation to the charity of their choice.

The H.E.R.O. with the most votes was Rebecca White, BSN, RN from Texas Children’s Hospital.

“As a mother of a child with debilitating chronic illness, I found myself called to the nursing profession, inspired by the heroes I came in contact with in the NICU nine years ago,” says White.

Seven years later, she made her way back to that NICU, though this time on the other side. She spends her time off volunteering in the community and going above and beyond at her organization. A $10,000 donation will be made in her name to the Children’s Craniofacial Association

This year’s additional winners are:

  • Paolo Pentines: Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center – Oregon
