St. Charles nurses receive regional awards
Bruce Pizzolato and Jean Hill, both nurses at St. Charles Parish Hospital, each received a Nightingale Award at the 11th Annual Louisiana Awards Gala for Nursing and Healthcare.
Hill won the Nightingale Award for Nursing Administrator of the Year. The award goes to a registered nurse who administers the business/patient care activities of health organization and manages other personnel. The recipient also had to show great communication skills as well as a strength in leading/administering nursing care delivery.
Pizzolato won the Nightingale Award for Nursing Rookie of the Year. This award honors a registered nurse who, while practicing for less than two years, exhibits awareness of the practice of nursing and professionalism while delivering nursing care.
The Louisiana State Nurses Association (LSNA) was established in 1904. It was then, and is now, the organization that advocates for all of nursing regardless of specialty or practice setting. LSNA’s mission is "To support and serve all levels of registered nurses in Louisiana through ethical leadership, professional growth, and effective advocacy to promote excellence in health care."
In accordance with this Mission, LSNA seeks to provide an avenue for nurses, working together, to actively address the factors which impact health care and their profession of nursing.
