Another Amazing Certified Nursing Assistant!

February 5th, 2014 by Linda Leekley in Honoring CNAs

In 1979, Nancy Ruschak began working as a certified nursing assistant.  After 34 years, she continues to love her job.  Currently, she works as a hospice aide, caring for the terminally ill and their families.  Recently, Nancy was honored by her employer, Amedysis, as the Hospice Aide of the Year.

Her organization says that Nancy earned the award by demonstrating “clinical excellence with patients, positively influencing patients and families, and functioning as an outstanding member of the care team.”

About her patients, Nancy says, ““Everybody touches me. They all touch my heart, and I hope I touch their heart too.”
