Labor & Delivery Staff Registered Nurse Nicole Receives Nurse Excellence Award

Labor & Delivery Staff Registered Nurse Nicole Receives Nurse Excellence Award

Labor & Delivery Staff Registered Nurse Nicole has been honored with the North Oaks Health System Nurse Excellence Award for July 2021.

With a passion for women’s health, Nicole joined the Labor & Delivery team at North Oaks Medical Center in 2014 as a Nurse Tech. After graduation from nursing school, she accepted a Staff Registered Nurse position on the unit. She also is a Certified Lactation Consultant and teaches a breastfeeding class for expectant parents.

“I put my all into bringing my patients' children into this world,” shares Nicole.

Nicole’s commitment to North Oaks and the community inspires her to assist in other areas of the health system too. For example, she has helped to administer COVID-19 vaccines and drive-thru tests during the pandemic.

“Nothing makes me happier than being here in my hometown working with some of the best people around,” explains Nicole. “The collaboration of care between our providers, nurses, support staff and leadership is second to none! I’ll probably retire at North Oaks!”

Nicole earned a bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Delgado Charity School of Nursing in New Orleans.

Nicole, her husband Brett and 4-year-old daughter Lucy live in Hammond.

Disney World® is a favorite destination for Nicole and her family, and she also enjoys dining out and spending time with friends and family locally.

“Nursing is a job for some, and for others, like Nicole, it’s a passion," asserts Clinical Nurse Manager Holly Myers. "She is committed to not only her patients but also her co-workers, North Oaks and this community. She exceeds the expectations of her job and treats her patients and their families with such dedication, compassion and heart!”
