Prior to her employment at MDH, Julie gained valuable skills working on a medical/surgical floor that have been advantageous as she transitioned to her new role as an OB RN. Julie is a skilled nurse who has great IV skills. She is knowledgeable and continues to take on new responsibilities. Julie stays calm in all situations and is a team player who is always willing to jump in and help someone who needs an extra hand.
Julie is a strong patient advocate who is very compassionate and dedicated to her patients. She has a great sense of humor and makes patients feel at ease while providing care to them. Julie is a joy to work with and always has a positive attitude. Nursing is her profession, not just a job.

Another nominator explains, “Julie is such a hard working nurse. She is loved by all of her patients and is so kind.” She is always upbeat and happy, makes coming to work fun and has such a contagious laugh. You can tell by her attitude at work she loves her job.
