Charles George VA Medical Center
Chief Nurse Executive Dave Przestrzelski and Licensed Practical Nurse Jim Luetkenhaus won in the Nurse Executive and Licensed Practical Nurse categories respectively.
VA Awards: WLOS interviewed Mr. Przestrzelski concerning the Secretary VA awards. Go to the link for the article.
What the interview didn’t capture is Mr. P talking about the amazing nurse/staff he gets to work for every day. He discussed the awards being given since 1984, the categories of the awards, the competition among more than 100,000 nurses nationwide in VA for these prestigious awards, and that the LPN winner was our facility’s back-to-back award. He also noted that this is the 2020 International year of the Nurse and Midwife and the 200th birthday of Florence Nightingale.
