CARBONDALE, Ill., Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Staffing Network Healthcare, LLC (MSN) announced today the Nurse of the Month contest winner for December. The contest, which MSN has been co-sponsoring with local Carbondale radio station 107.3 W3D, honors exceptional local nurses. It was promoted during drive-time radio, and nominations were open to the public via the station's website.
December's Nurse of the Month winner is Julie Watson, LPN, from DuQuoin, IL. One of the two people who nominated her was the doctor who employs her in his private practice in Carterville, IL, Dr. Douglas Brown. He said, "I bought this practice two years ago and my nurse, Julie, came with the practice. She's my right arm. She knows her patients very well and can answer any question I have about them. Not to mention that the patients LOVE her. I couldn't ask for a more devoted nurse than Julie is to her job and patient care. She also drives 45 minutes one way to work and never complains. I appreciate her to the moon and back."
Ms. Watson was excited about winning the Nurse of the Month Contest, stating, "My staff found out about the award even before I did. That was a real surprise!"
On December 12th, MSN's Carbondale Branch Manager, Shelley Zeigler, and Janet Carey from W3D presented the prizes to Julie at their offices. The prizes included Marion H.S. Madrigal Tickets, two sets of four tickets to the Southern IL University basketball games, a Miller Spinal Health massage, and a Houlihan's Restaurant gift certificate.
Said Ms. Zeigler, "MSN is proud to sponsor the Nurse of the Month contest because it enables us to acknowledge and reward nurses like Julie for positively impacting patients' lives every day."
