Bekah Herndon Receives DAISY Nurse Recognition Award
Bekah Herndon, a registered nurse with Pullman Regional Hospital, was recently honored with a DAISY Award, an international nurse recognition program for nurses who go above and beyond to care for their patients.
Bekah was nominated by a grateful patient who described her as one of the most thorough, knowledgeable and compassionate medical professionals they’ve ever met.
Bekah’s career at Pullman Regional Hospital started in 2005 as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) in BirthPlace; she’s now a registered nurse with the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). “My mom inspired me to become a nurse,” said Bekah. “She has been a nurse since I was younger, and I always knew that was what I wanted to do.”
For Bekah, nursing has become a fulfilling mission for doing something meaningful and for perpetual learning. “I love feeling like I made a difference in someone's life. I also love the ever-changing field of medicine. I learn new things about the human body and how we treat disease every year, and I love that aspect of nursing. I'm grateful to work at PRH because of my fantastic co-workers; I always feel supported and cared about.”
