Nursing Professor Christine Greenwald Receives Golden D.U.C.K. Award
SFCC Nursing Professor Christine Greenwald was recently selected as the recipient of the Golden D.U.C.K. award by the Hardee Practical Nursing Class of 2009. The D.U.C.K program is a mentoring program developed by the SFCC Nursing Department that helps nursing students develop understanding, compassion, and knowledge. The program assigns each nursing student to a faculty advisor and to a group consisting of their peers. Each graduating nursing class then honors an individual in the health care community that has helped them develop understanding, compassion, and knowledge with the Golden D.U.C.K award.
“Our class chose to honor Professor Greenwald with the Golden D.U.C.K. Award because of her positivity,” said Hardee Practical Nursing 2009 graduate Kareliz Paez. “Even when she would critique our work, she always had something to say to reinforce our strengths. Her positivity was inspiring to all of us.”
“As a nursing professor I am entrusted with the development of those who will be taking our lives and the lives of our families in their hands,” said Greenwald. “I was overwhelmed and speechless when my name was announced as the recipient. It is an award I will treasure forever.”
