Jazmin Manlapaz, RNIII, MSU wins the Academy of Medical/Surgical Nursing Clinical Leadership Award

Jazmin ManlapazCongratulations to Jazmin Manlapaz RNIII, Medical/Surgical Unit, for receiving the Clinical Leadership Award for Medical/Surgical Nurses! Given by the Association of Medical/Surgical Nursing (AMSN), this award acknowledges nurses whose leadership qualities emulate the highest of professional standards and have improved the image and practice of medical/surgical nursing. Jazmin was presented this award at the annual convention of AMSN in Salt Lake City, Utah on October 4th, 2012.

Jazmin has been a Med/Surg nurse for 44 years and has been an active member of AMSN for 10 years. She is proud to be a member of a professional organization and maintaining her certification in her specialty. Based on the criteria for the award and her many contributions to her profession, she submitted her nomination, with additional nominations from her Clinical Director, Christine Frost, and a peer, Elise Morris, RNIII on her behalf.

Jazmin loves the challenges of Med/Surg nursing and has been an active participant in unit based as well as hospital wide initiatives that improve the quality of care for our patients. She quotes, “I enjoy learning about and helping patients understand the different types of diseases that impact their lives. MSU is a great floor to work on. We face challenges and work with the leadership team, bedside staff, and clinical support services to try different projects that have a positive impact on patient care. People ask me when I will retire, I answer that I still love what I’m doing in Med/Surg!”

We are very proud of Jazmin’s accomplishment and dedication to her patients and AAMC!

-Christine Frost, RN, Director MSU/SCU

    Jazmine was here when I started working at AAMC in 1979. I was only out of nursing school for about a year when we met and she was so supportive and helpful to me! I will always remember those days and how she helped me grow as a nurse. Over the years she has always been a role model. Jazmine truly deserves this award! Congratulations!
