Top Nurses 2020

Madison Magazine, January 2021

We pay tribute to courageous and compassionate front line nurses who show up, lead and innovate to care for patients.
Magazine opened to page with article called When Safer at Home Isn't

Every other year, Madison Magazine honors seven top nurses in the categories of Practice, Innovation and Leadership. This year, considering the COVID-19 pandemic, they chose to highlight all nominated nurses in some way while also pulling out larger profiles on the seven winners.

I had the privilege of writing four of those seven profiles.

Aniqueka Scott of UW Health received the practice award (and Aniqueka was featured on the cover!)

 Bre Loughlin and Tracy Zvenyach of Nurse Disrupted were recipients of the innovation award.

 Brittany Nesbit of UW Health was a recipient of the innovation award.

 Rachel Ruhland of William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital is a recipient of the practice award.

To read about all of our nurses please pick up the January 2021 issue of Madison Magazine at area newsstands, or click through to the online version here.
