The Department of Nursing and Health would like to congratulate Ben U's RN to BSN alum, Anne Lipira, RN, on winning Good Samaritan's "Advocate Nurse" 2018 award! " More than 400 nurses from Advocate Health Care's hospitals, home health care, support center, clinics and medical offices were nominated for this second annual award. Nominations were submitted by physicians and associates, including many non-nursing associates, to recognize Advocate nurses who empower, serve and thrive. These nominations were vetted and presented in blinded format to site-based review committees who scored each according to a metric that considered each nominee's passion for patient care, commitment to service, problem-solving abilities and leadership aptitude."
