To climax Nurses Week 2024, Nurse Rosemund Willock of Sir Lester Bird Medical Center’s operating department has been named Nurse of the Year.

This prestigious recognition was bestowed upon her through a public vote, underscoring the immense respect and gratitude patients and the broader community hold for her exceptional dedication and care.

Nurses Week, a week-long celebration dedicated to honoring and appreciating nurses for their invaluable contributions to healthcare, concluded over the weekend with a ceremony highlighting the outstanding work of nursing professionals like Nurse Willock.

This annual event, typically held from May 6 to 12, ending on Florence Nightingale’s birthday, recognizes the transformative impact nurses have on individuals and communities.

Nurse Willock’s reaction to the award was one of heartfelt humility and gratitude. “I’m very honored this morning,” she expressed. “I’m very grateful to everybody who supported me, that you voted me as your favorite.” She went on to reflect on the core responsibilities of nursing, quoting the words of a wise manager: “We need to look out for our patients at all times. We have three responsibilities: one to care, one to advocate, and one to lead.”

This well-deserved recognition of Nurse Willock’s outstanding professional care shines a light on the profound impact compassionate nursing can have on individuals and communities. Her dedication to the well-being of her patients, coupled with her commitment to advocacy and leadership, exemplifies the highest ideals of the nursing profession.
