UC Irvine Medical Center honors 9 for nursing excellence
Date:5/12/2011

Orange, Calif., May 12, 2011 Each year during National Nurses Week, UC Irvine Medical Center honors nurses who demonstrate excellence in patient care, education and guidance, mentorship, and teamwork.

"The nursing mission here is to provide compassionate, patient-centered care," said Karen Grimley, chief nursing officer at UC Irvine. "Our patients are feeling that commitment."

She noted that the approximately 1,200 nurses there are caring for patients, as opposed to simply taking care of them.

"You can train anyone to be a nurse and provide a service," Grimley said. "But it takes a special group of nurses to embrace the total care and compassion that elevates the patient experience."

The following were honored Wednesday at the Nursing Exemplar Awards Ceremony, one of a series of events marking National Nurses Week and National Hospital Week at UC Irvine.
