Today we are here from Passport USA to recognize Janine for living out her dream and role modeling all the qualities and attributes that are associated with an excellent nurse. She is a shining example of professionalism, teamwork, dedication, and compassion.
We learned from Janine that she had been involved in a situation where her critical thinking and quick response time was key to the total team efforts to resuscitate a resident. Janine was incredibly humble but proud of the teamwork and excellence in nursing that occurred in this incident.
Janine's Supervisor at Passport USA values the commitment and professionalism that Janine displays in their interactions and highly recommended her for this prestigious award. Janine is an important part of the Passport USA family and she truly represents the quality we strive to achieve and is an excellent ambassador for our mission, "To make healthcare better."
UPMC Canterbury leadership has shared similar feedback about Janine's performance:
Janine has been a great asset to my unit. She takes the initiative independently to get things completed and always helps her fellow nurses with their tasks. She has stayed numerous times to help as an "admission nurse" when the unit was quite busy. I have had her as a project nurse when we had an extra nurse on a shift and given her a list of tasks to complete. She has always completed the tasks timely and accurately. She listens and takes guidance seriously. She also has been a preceptor to one of our new Graduate nurses which can be trying at times but has handled herself professionally and with a lot of patience to teach. She communicates well and has been in multiple stressful situations in which she handled herself appropriately and professionally.
