Friends of Nursing is a grateful patient program that was established to recognize professional excellence in nursing practice, nursing education and nursing research, enhance the status of nursing and promote nursing as a rewarding career.
We are so proud of all our recipients such as Kiera Gardner, an outstanding RN and one of eight nurses who helped found a local chapter of the Association for Radiologic & Imaging Nursing. Gardner is the co-author of a published article, “A Case Study: Percutaneous Lung Biopsy and Symptomatic Arterial Air Embolus,” she volunteers for multiple organizations, and much more!
