More specifically, Brooks nursing leadership encouraged peer nominations of nurses who: demonstrate significant achievement in the nursing field; exhibit nursing leadership qualities; act as role model and inspiration for other nurses to strive for excellence; mentor others in their professional development; and foster a positive image of the nursing profession.
Those who were fortunate to work with Carol know these are big shoes to fill.
As part of National Nurses Week celebrations on May 10th, a ceremony was held at Brooks to recognize one employee who merits this honor. The registered nurse selected so closely exemplifies the personal and professional attributes modeled by Carol, the choice was simple.
Coincidentally, the award’s first recipient is Carol’s own daughter, Laura Beehler, RN, 2A charge nurse.
Laura is known among her peers as a leader who readily provides wisdom and demonstrates experienced professionalism with enthusiasm and energy. Her peers say she is calm under pressure and shows remarkable patience while teaching newer nursing staff. She is admired as she treats everyone she encounters with respect and kindness.
Without question, Laura’s personal and professional attributes parallel those surely taught by her mother. For this, we thank you, Carol. Your legacy has been memorialized indeed.
