Meet the five nurses in the running for the title of America’s Most Amazing Nurse! From the thousands of nomineesThe Doctors and Prevention Magazine received, these five extraordinary healthcare professionals have risen to the top. Barbara O’Dair, editor-in-chief of Prevention, says, “We want to celebrate and honor these women and men.”
April Oliver is a CCAT nurse for the U.S. Air Force. She describes it as “The ICU in the sky!” She performs all the functions of a normal intensive-care nurse in the back of an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet.
Sandy Cross is the Breast Cancer Patient Navigator at Huntsville Hospital in Alabama. She developed a breast-cancer patient assistance fund to help patients navigate a sudden, unexpected leave of absence from work while undergoing treatment. “We are able to pay just about everything they would need,” she explains.
Billy Rosa says, “I’m most passionate about nurses finding their voice, finding their power.” He’s a Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. “For me, being a nurse is the most sacred opportunity to be the change you want to be.”
Daniella Casimir is an Advanced Practice Nurse at NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases. She provides primary care to women with disabilities. “I’ve always been fond of women’s health,” she explains. Her job allows her to be on the front lines, taking care of the women who need it most.
Laura Clary is the Manager of Sexual Assault Forensic Investigation & Domestic Violence Programs at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. “The hardest part of the job is that you’re seeing people on the worst day of their life,” she says. Laura stresses that domestic violence doesn’t discriminate – it affects people from all walks of life. “It’s really opened my eyes.”
Each finalist receives $1,000 toward the charity of their choice. On May 6th, The Doctors will announce the winner on-air! America’s Most Amazing Nurse will receive a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Iceland courtesy of Blue Lagoon and WOW Air. Get to know the five finalists better in the May issue of Prevention.
