Natale Edwards, NICU Nurse
St. Vincent Women’s Hospital Indianapolis
Nominated by Jamie Bazoon
Natale is an extraordinary nurse. She always goes above and beyond for her patients and their families. My husband is active army and had to return to duty leaving my son and me behind to continue our NICU stay. She made me feel like I wasn’t alone. She would call if I hadn’t had a chance to get to the hospital in the morning to let me know how my son was doing, even though she knew I would be there that afternoon.
If he had an issue and I panicked, she rescued both of us. She was always so calming for both my son and me during our NICU journey. It was so comforting knowing he was in amazing hands! We have kept in touch 4 years later, and even though the military has moved my family all over the country, we have been able to maintain our friendship. Natale is an exceptional nurse, and more than that, an amazing friend.
