Congratulations to Amber Bjorklund, BSN, RN, a staff nurse on the Acute Rehabilitation Unit at Methodist Hospital, for being honored with The DAISY Award! She was nominated by Lindsey Nelson, a nursing student at Nebraska Methodist College. Nelson wrote:

"I am a student placed to work with Amber during my clinical rotations. Amber was the absolute sweetest nurse I think I have ever met. You can truly tell that she cares about all the patients that she works with. She was constantly checking in with them asking how they were doing and if she could get them anything. Amber was also always asking her other coworkers how they were and if they needed any help with anything. She took the time to show me how the charting system works, the proper way to pass medications from the Omnicell and the proper way to perform head-to-toe assessment on patients. ... She was always willing to answer any questions that I had. She truly deserves a DAISY Award. Amber is the nurse that I aspire to be when I graduate."
