Purpose, Worthwhile Work, Making a Difference!  
Serena is the perfect float nurse. She gets along with her peers and fits in as a team member in each department. She is a certified wound care nurse and a valuable resource for physicians, nurses and patients when wound care is needed. She is currently working on BSN completion and deciding on what area of masters to pursue. As a preceptor coordinator, Serena arranges new float nurses' orientation for the best fit and best experience. She keeps in touch with new nurses during orientation and acts as a long-term mentor. She also is active in arranging nursing students to shadow RNs. She coordinates a student RN internship program which helps in the recruitment and retention of new nurses as well as assists in transition from student to RN.

We congratulate Serena on being chosen August’s Employee of the Month.
