In 2015 the Department of Urology established an award to recognize excellence in urology nursing care to coincide with National Nurses Week.  The award is named in honor of our first recipient, Carole Theophin.  Carole has been our longest employee having come to the Urology clinic in 2005.

Carole exhibits the characteristics the department believes are necessary to deliver high quality, excellent care:

  •  Compassion, respect and dignity for every person
  •  Advocates for, protects the rights, health and safety of each patient
  •  Takes authority for their nursing practice
  •  Promotes health and safety for him or herself

The Carole Theophin Excellence in Nursing Award will be awarded each year to a urology nurse who exhibits the same qualities listed above.
