“I want to congratulate April Camiling on this significant achievement,” said Ihor S. Sawczuk, M.D., president of Hackensack University Medical Center. “This national recognition is a well-deserved honor.”
Focused on evidence-based practice with an emphasis on conducting research in collaboration with team members, Ms. Camiling performs a critical and multifaceted role. She provides clinical expertise for team members as well as patients, supporting staff RNs in facilitating off-unit chemotherapy where education for patients, families and non-oncology team members is required. She coordinates the BMT Nurse Fellowship Program and prepares staff RNs to transition to the BMT specialty practice.
“April Camiling is a dedicated expert in her field who also serves as an excellent mentor and coach,” said Dianne Aroh, executive vice president, chief clinical and patient care officer at Hackensack University Medical Center. “Her contributions are highly valued and deeply appreciated.”
Modern Healthcare launched its Excellence in Nursing Award to shine a spotlight on the diverse and critical roles these clinicians, managers and executives play in delivering high-quality, compassionate care.
“This year’s honorees exemplify what it means to strive for patient-centered, compassionate care,” said Modern Healthcare Managing Editor Matthew Weinstock. “These nurse leaders are making huge differences not just for patients, but the profession by serving as mentors and role models for their peers.”
