National Nurse Proponent Teri Mills has been honored by being selected as a 2005 recipient of the Oregon Center for Nursing's Florence Nightingale Medallion. Ms. Mills, a respected and popular instructor of nursing at Portland Community College, was presented with the medallion during a faculty meeting.
She was further recognized at the college's Pinning Ceremony for the Nursing Class of 2005. At that ceremony, Teri was thanked publicly for bringing honor to the college and the profession of nursing, and for, in the words of Florence Nightingale herself, "distilling thoughts into actions that bring results."
Thank you, Teri, for your untiring efforts to inspire your students and to enhance and uplift the profession of nursing.
