Surgery Center Staff RN Sheryl Receives Nurse Excellence Award

Surgery Center Staff RN Sheryl has received the North Oaks Health System Nurse Excellence Award for September 2016.

“I aim to lessen the anxiety my patients and their loved ones may experience by providing compassionate, safe, quality care,” Sheryl shares.

In October 2009, Sheryl became a Medicine Unit staff registered nurse at North Oaks. In 2011, she became a registered nurse circulator in the Operating Room and then transferred to the outpatient Surgery Center in May 2015 to broaden her skills in the care of patients before and after surgery.

She earned bachelor’s degrees in Business Management and Nursing from Southeastern Louisiana University.

Born in Taipei, Taiwan, Sheryl is a proud U.S. Army wife to Scott. They make their home in Hammond with their sons Josh, 18, and Gunner, 16, and four dogs—Rex, Lola, Noelle and Mia.

When she’s not cheering on her sons at their football, baseball and basketball games, she can be found shopping, reading or watching movies (especially the Harry Potter series).

“The way that Sheryl delivers care is impressive. She is always willing to lend a hand, and her warm smile and calming manner immediately puts patients at ease,” affirms Beverly Caldwell, North Oaks Surgery Center Manager.
