"As GI and endoscopy nurses and associates ourselves, we have a profound understanding of the diverse demands of our field and the passion with which we serve the needs of our patients," said Lisa Heard, BSN RN CGRN, president of SGNA. "We are excited that 'GI Nurses & Associates Day' gives the public and the GI/endoscopy fields a chance to recognize the outstanding commitment of these individuals, and we encourage all local units and facilities to submit their winners to SGNA for national consideration."
