The News & Observer, The Herald-Sun and Triangle Today, in conjunction with the community, honored the Hearts of Healthcare with a special luncheon awards celebration Thursday, May 3, at Aloft hotel in Brier Creek. In celebration of National Nurses Week, the community was invited to nominate a local nurse who has made a difference in someone’s life or had an impact on the community.
The nomination process ran Monday, March 12 through Friday, April 20. The North Carolina Nurses Association selected the 2018 winner from a group of 20 qualified finalists, including Kathy Robinson, RN, from among nearly 200 nominations.
Kathy Robinson RN
Duke Children’s Specialty Services of Raleigh
Here's what her nominator had to say:
Cathy has been a pediatric cardiac nurse for over 15 years. She has been with Duke for almost 30 years. She is dedicated to her patients and is very knowledgeable about pediatric cardiac issues. She is always available to the families for advice and care. The patients always ask for her when they return for visits. The children trust her and have a lot of affection for her. I believe she deserves to be recognized for her dedication. She is always available to teach other nurses and mentor them in cardiology. The physicians rely on her daily to help with patient calls and issues that arise.
