Awards presented to Salisbury VA nurses

The Salisbury VA Health Care System recognized three women for job performance during the previous year.

The Salisbury VA ended National Nurses Week, May 6-12, by awarding the registered nurse of the year in a staff role, registered nurse of year in an expanded role, and nursing assistant of the year.

The award winners were Jennifer McClaney-Aiken for registered nurse of the year in a staff role; Cynthia Allen for registered nurse of the year in an expanded role; and Kialoni Brincefield for nursing assistant of the year.

“These nurses are a testament to the hard work and dedication that all our nursing staff put forth on a daily basis,” said Joseph Vaughn, Salisbury VA’s Health Care System director. “I have been immensely impressed as I continue to meet with our nursing staff, and I am proud to recognize these three nurses for leading the way in excellence and commitment in the care they provide to the Veterans we serve. As we say in the Navy, ‘Bravo Zulu!’”

Every year, National Nurses Week comes up with a theme to make the week one to remember. This year, the theme presented was “four million reasons to celebrate.” Nurses make daily sacrifices throughout health care across the nation, and this week recognizes those contributions.
