NHCH Nurse Receives Queen’s Excellence Award
Stephanie Landers, RN, was presented with the Queen’s Award of Excellence on Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017.
The Award of Excellence is given to managers within The Queen’s Health Systems for their initiative, creativity, innovation and accomplishments.
QHS President and CEO Art Ushijima presented the award at a ceremony at The Queen’s Medical Center on O‘ahu.
NHCH President Cindy Kamikawa was present along with NHCH Chief Medical Office Dr. Gary Goldberg, NHCH Director of Nursing Julie Stanforth Zanoff and fellow NHCH nurse manager Kim Bastien.
Landers began working at NHCH in 2004 as an emergency room nurse and later promoted to house coordinator.
As house coordinator, Landers usually works nights and weekends, serving as the highest official on duty, responsible for ensuring the continuity of patient care services. Serving as house coordinator has provided Stephanie with the opportunity to share her skills and knowledge throughout the hospital and her passion for teaching.
Landers teaches a variety of classes such as advanced cardiac life support and pediatric advanced life support.
“Stephanie has an amazing gift of teaching. She does not turn the classroom lights off until each student is completely confident in their skills,” said NHCH President Cindy Kamikawa. “This confidence that she brings out in her students can make a difference for our patients, especially in emergency situations.”
Landers is also involved in the community, providing emergency services at special events and serving as president of the PTA at her son’s school.
