Franciscan Health Dyer nurses were honored May 11 during an annual Franciscan Nursing Award celebration. Winners were selected in the categories of Staff Nurse-Clinical Nurse, Nurse Leader, Nurse Educator and Ambulatory-Outpatient Nurse. Each was lauded in comments by their colleagues that were read aloud by Alisa Murchek, chief nursing officer.
