We appreciate the men and women who take care of America.

The latest $1,000 Nurses Night Out prize from California Casualty is reducing the stress in RN Jennifer Meyer’s life.

“I’ve just enrolled in a master’s degree program and the money will help pay for tuition,” she said. “I love being a nurse, helping and interacting with patients, but I want to go back to school so that I can get into hospital management and help other nurses.”

Jennifer has been working in General Surgery at the Cleveland Clinic since she graduated from nursing school almost two years ago. She describes herself as a “calming force” in the operating room, which can often become tense. “In surgery I get to concentrate on making things better for one patient at a time,” she said.

California Casualty created the Nurses Night Out contest to thank nurses for the long hours they put in offering comfort and healing to patients and families. “We appreciate the men and women who take care of America,” said California Casualty Sr. Vice President, Mike McCormick.

Acknowledging that while the money is nice, Jennifer is grateful that a company like California Casualty recognizes the hard work she and others in in the nursing profession do.

The Ohio Nurses Association, a California Casualty partner, also provided Jennifer with a complimentary membership and free access to their continuing education activities and classes for a full year. “We love being able to share the excitement of honoring nurses,” said Molly Homan of the Ohio Nurses Association. “Nurses are so special and it’s great to have an opportunity like Nurses Night Out to give back to people who give so much of themselves every single day.”

Jennifer was surprised with the gift during a staff meeting December 14. Another $1,000 Nurses Night Out winner will be announced in early January.
