Nurses have a vital job

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – They make a difference in the lives of thousands of south Georgians every day.

Nurses don't have an easy job, but it is a vital job and one that's in high demand.

On Thursday we spent part of the afternoon with the Phoebe Putney Hospital's 2010 nurse of the year, Rebecca Lamb.

Lamb was nominated by fellow nurses on her floor for her clinical and leadership skills.

"I was completely stunned they read the description and I didn't recognize myself, I said wow that's a great person, it's not me," said Rebecca Lamb, Phoebe's Nurse Of The Year.

Lamb joined Phoebe three years ago after graduating from Darton College.

She is currently pursuing her bachelor's degree in nursing from Georgia Southwestern State University.
