Siler Named Nurse of the Year

Sentara Potomac Hospital staff nurse, Shaunna Siler, R.N., received the Dale City Civic Association’s 2009 Kathie Feeney Nurse of the Year Award on January 31.

Shaunna began working as a licensed practical nurse on the Hematology/Oncology Unit in 2004 and while learning the ropes of being a bedside nurse she returned to nursing school. A very deserving recipient of the Potomac Hospital Nursing Scholarship, she attended Northern Virginia Community College and earned an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Nursing in 2007. She became a registered nurse and is now working on her master’s degree in Nursing. Shaunna works full time on the Hematology/Oncology Unit and is currently working on becoming a Certified Oncology Nurse.

Shaunna is a competent and caring nurse, devoted to the excellent care of her patients. She is a resource to all those she works with and truly represents the best of the nursing profession. We are very fortunate to have Shaunna as a member of the Sentara Potomac family!
