Gundersen Harmony nurse wins award


Fri, Jun 6th, 2014
Posted in Harmony Business Announcements

A registered nurse at the Gundersen Harmony Clinic is one of nine nurses at Gundersen Health System to be recognized with an Excellence in Nursing Award.

Cheryl Hotvedt, RN, received the Excellence in Nursing Practice – RN Award for her breadth and depth of skill. “Cheryl joined our Harmony clinic in late 2011 and has changed the culture of our clinic,” explains Linda Kastantin, clinic manager, Gundersen Harmony Clinic. “She brings knowledge from her other nursing positions, is compassionate to our patients and has a wonderful ‘we can do it’ attitude.”

The awards recognize exceptional contributions to the profession of nursing and to Gundersen. Award recipients were selected from 63 nomination letters submitted by nurses, physicians and colleagues. Winners were determined based on nomination narratives and examples of nominees’ outstanding contributions that met award criteria.

Cheryl was nominated by Randi Berg, MD, Family Medicine physician at the Harmony Clinic. “It’s nearly impossible to imagine our office without Cheryl’s breadth and depth of skill. She served as an ER nurse for seven years before coming to our rural office. You might think that a sleepy rural practice would be ill-suited to someone used to a fast pace of emergency room work, but quite the opposite is true. Being rather far from tertiary care, it is critical that we remain prepared to respond quickly and with a clear head as emergency situations arise,” says Dr. Berg.

“Winning this award is both humbling and very gratifying. I feel like I was just doing my job, but to be acknowledged for what I love doing is wonderful,” comments Cheryl. “The patients in Harmony are a joy to take care of and the great staff at Gundersen Harmony Clinic is a joy to work with. When Dr. Berg nominated me it was unexpected. Her comments in the nomination letter were very heartwarming.”

Gundersen has more than 1,600 employees in their system who have a current registered nurse license. The awards were presented at Gundersen’s annual Nurse’ Day ceremony in early May.
