I am honored and proud to announce that Emely Haviaras, RN (UF Health Urology – Medical Plaza), has been named the UF College of Medicine Florence Nightingale Award Winner for 2022.  This is truly an honor for her to be recognized by her peers for her performance and dedication to nursing.  We all recognize the great work she does every day and I want to say as an RN for over 35 years I am proud to be Emely’s colleague.   

Her actions reflect the UF Health Shand’s Nursing Vision Statement daily:

“To set a new standard of excellence in autonomous, accountable nursing practice committed to patient advocacy and innovative patient care in a climate of trust and collaboration.”
