MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- The Wartburg Home's director of nursing, Paulette Watson, RN, MS, was honored at the 2014 National Association of Directors of Nursing Administration in Long Term Care conference held in June in Anaheim, Calif.
Watson was honored for her commitment of more than 10 years of serving patients at Wartburg.
NADONA is an association dedicated to nurse executives/nurse administrators in long-term care.
“I was truly honored to know that the NADONA, along with my colleagues, recognized and acknowledged my commitment to those we serve. I feel very privileged to work at such a renowned and respected organization,” said Watson.
“When I began my tenure at Wartburg 10 years ago, I was intrigued by the rich history and the mission of nurturing mind, body and spirit. I quickly learned that what we did mattered; it mattered most to the seniors we care for but also to the success of our organization. I strongly believe that every professional, if given the opportunity, would like to work at the best organization in their field, and Wartburg is known as one of the premier leaders in long-term care.”
“In the world of post-acute nursing, Ms. Watson is a pillar in this community. It does not surprise me that her peers would recognize her in such a way. We are so proud of her leadership and the work of the entire nursing department,” said David Gentner, president and CEO of Wartburg.
During the conference, Watson and other directors of nursing across the nation received the award for being a director of nursing in the same organization for over a decade.
