Olubukola Keshinro, RN

The real reward for nurses is the inner satisfaction of helping those in need, but official accolades are nice too. The Nassau County University Medical Center’s psychiatry and behavioral sciences department nominated Olubukola Keshinro, RN, for the 2013 Nassau-Suffolk Hospital Council Nursing Excellence Award. In addition to her work at the hospital, she is a founding member of the Nigerian Nurses Association, traveling to the country every year to do health screenings, educate and donate needed supplies. nuhealth.net
