Reese is Best Nurse


Morgan Reese tied with another in votes, but still earns the title of Best Nurse. She graduated from Georgia College & State University School of Nursing with a Bachelors of Science in nursing in May 2015. She has been a nurse at University Hospital McDuffie Emergency Department since July 2015. As an emergency nurse, she provides emergency patient care and treatment to those arriving at the Emergency Department. She does this six nights in a row for 12.5 hours a night, but could extend if the department is busy or has critical patients. Reese attributes her success in nursing to her family, who supported her throughout nursing school, her fiance, who helped her stay focused on her career and her co-workers, who have taught her so much. "I feel so honored to be chosen as one of the best nurses,” Reese said. “Thank you to all who voted for me. Being a nurse has been a life-long dream of mine and taking care of the patients in our community is what I love to do!"
