Jan brings hope to everyone she meets. She is the kind of person you look up to and respect. She is the kind of person you can aspire to be like. Jan does her job(s) in a spectacular fashion. She not only teaches people, but she practices what she teaches. She is an extraordinary nurse, teacher, and person. When she is explaining something to the patient or one of her coworkers, she is compassionate and understandable. She makes the patient (or anyone else) feel comfortable and leaves them feeling great about themselves. Jan deserves this award because of her compassion, understanding, kindness and TRUE nursing skills. We would do well to have more nurses like her.
