Nanette Murray, RN
Radiation Medicine Department
Hudson Valley Magazine's Excellence in Nursing Award - 2011
Every clinical professional knows that we would not be able to do our jobs and impact our patients without the other professionals standing beside us, which is why we chose this year to nominate two nurses from our Radiation Medicine Department.
Nanette Murray, RN, is the Charge Nurse of Westchester Medical Center’s Radiation Medicine Department. As Nanette supports them on their journey through one of the most difficult trials of their lives, she harness the many years of experience she has gathered to give help, assistance, and intervene for best outcomes. Whatever the need, this nurse is always there, she provides the emotional support these patients’ need for their journey while being an expert clinician.
This experienced professional is adding to the specialty in additional ways as well. Nanette presented an abstract in Germany this year about “Frameless” Stereotactic Radiosurgery Systems. This is a great positive for patients; the use of the frameless system allows freedom from the more cumbersome components of the frame.
