April 2024 DAISY Award Recipient

Jessica Nicolle, RN
Ambulatory Care Unit

Jessica is a nurse in our ACU, caring for outpatient surgery patients. Her commitment to excellence in nursing is unwavering. She provides exceptional patient care, continually going above and beyond to ensure the well-being of those under her care. She was nominated for the DAISY Award by a recent patient who wrote, “Jessica was an exceptional nurse. I was her last patient of the day and was having a couple of difficult, unexpected issues. Jessica helped me resolve both. I was the only patient left and I knew it was past her time of leaving yet I never felt rushed. She told me she was not concerned about the late hour. She explained that her goal was to avoid having to check me into the hospital and her focus was solely on that goal. I truly believe her compassion enabled me to finally be discharged.” Congratulations, Jessica!
