Two Nursing Alumni Recently Honored for Humanism in Healthcare
Tara Roche, B.S.N., and Jessica Shremshock, B.S.N., were recently recognized by the Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey recently at the Hamilton Park Hotel in Florham Park, NJ. The Lester Z. Lieberman Humanism in Healthcare Awards recognize compassion, empathy, respect and cultural sensitivity in the delivery of care to patients and their loved ones.
Roche, who plans to relocate to California, was singled out for her respect of patient dignity, and compassion for family members. Shremshock was cited as a model for all students of humanism and compassionate care; faculty noted that she has high standards of excellence and strong ethical values that guide her practice.
Kathleen Sternas, Ph.D., R.N., who nominated the students, noted their exceptional humanism and dedication to patients. "I am confident that these two young women will provide the best care to their patients and continue to typify all that encompasses a Seton Hall graduate, including a dedication to servant leadership," she notes.
