Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) in Tulsa is a proud DAISY Award Partner, recognizing one nurse each quarter. The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary, compassionate and skillful care given by nurses every day. Amy Susan, who is a nurse in the Infusion Center at CTCA and lives in Owasso, recently received the DAISY Award.

Susan’s sunny personality comforts her patients and family inspired her professional skills. “When I was nine years old, my grandma passed away from lung cancer,” says Susan. “We were extremely close. Before she passed, I used to give her what I called ‘medicine hugs.’ I knew from that point on that I wanted to be a nurse in oncology to help others battling cancer.

 “For those considering a nursing career,” Susan adds, “Some days will be challenging and exhausting. But nursing offers unique emotional fulfillments, and it is truly the most rewarding experience I’ve ever had. Remember to never lose your joy or compassion.  It’s true that when your heart is in it, it’s less of ‘work’ and more of a calling.”
