She is also a member of the SANE team in Mercy’s emergency department, tending to the needs of individuals who have been sexually assaulted. Tracy’s colleagues say she’s a role model and mentor for nurse residents, nurse apprentices and preceptors, and always offers a listening ear; comforting encouragement; and helpful, realistic advice. She has been with Mercy for 14 years.
The 100 Great Iowa Nurses award recognizes nurses who have made meaningful, lasting contributions to their patients, colleagues and the nursing profession, and who are viewed as mentors to other nursing professionals.
