River Parishes
River Parishes Hospital is proud to have two nurses named 2008 Great 100 Nurses.

They are Janice Schexnaydre, a registered nurse in the intensive care unit, and Mary Morvant, a registered nurse in the outpatient surgical services unit.

Schexnaydre and Morvant were honored at the 22nd Annual Great 100 Nurses Night, which was held Wednesday, Oct. 8 at The Pontchartrain Center.

They were each awarded with a certificate and a $100 cash award.

Afterwards, they enjoyed culinary delights from many well-known New Orleans restaurants.

Morvant has been an RN at the hospital for 10 years. She began working in Women’s Services and currently works on the Outpatient Surgical Services Unit.

When asked how she feels being named to this prestigious honor, she replied, “I am so thrilled to have been named a Great 100 Nurse. It is such an honor to be recognized in this way and to be among such an elite group of nurses.”

“Mary is a team player. She works well with her coworkers,” said Donna Madurski, Outpatient Surgical Services Unit Charge Nurse. “She has a pleasant, caring attitude with all of her patients.”

Schexnaydre previously worked at the hospital for approximately 15 years. During that time, she worked in both the Medical/Surgical Unit and the Intensive Care Unit and was named a Nurse of Year. She returned to the hospital in September 2007 and is currently working in the Intensive Care Unit.

“In the 35th year of my nursing career, being chosen as the Great 100 Nurse by my peers has truly been an honor,” said Schexnaydre. “I’ve been an ICU nurse for over 33 years and enjoy being involved in total patient care.”

“We are glad to have her back,” said Jeannie Krawczyk, ICU Nurse Manager. “Janice is a very dedicated and caring nurse who is willing to work whenever she is needed.”

Hospital administration, physicians and employees would like to congratulate these two nurses for being selected as two of Louisiana’s best 100 nurses. The hospital is honored to have them as part of the RPH team.
