To all the nurses who were nominated, all of those that weren't and to all now and future nurses, we say THANK YOU.

Kelly Lindberg of Brewerton - School Nurse at Brewerton Elementary

Heather Barringer of Rome - St. Luke's Hospital

Patrick Fraccola  of Frankfort - Lutheran Care

Kaeleigh Grosse of Ilion - Upstate Hospital in Syracuse

Thank you to all who nominated, your kind words about your favorite nurses were overwhelming. While we wanted to recognize some of your favorite nurses, every single man and woman who dedicates themselves to medicine and healing deserve recognition.

Thank you all once again for being there for us when we need you, even if that means extremely long shifts, aching feet, getting messy, and being under-appreciated.
