Nurse Cindy Prescott’s heart is still pounding after receiving a $1,000 Nurses Night Out from California Casualty.

Prescott has been the nurse for the Great Bend School District, in Great Bend, Kansas, for 25 years. She said loves providing care to the students, who often give hugs at school and recognize her when she is out in the community. With so many years as the school nurse, she is seeing second and third generations of the same families.

Nurse Cindy began her nursing career in surgery but found working in the school environment much more rewarding. “Kids give you the thanks you don’t always get elsewhere,” she said.

The contest was created to thank RNs and nurse practitioners for the long hours they put in offering comfort and healing to patients and families. Winners can use the $1,000 prize any way they wish: hitting the town in a rented limousine, hosting a party, or taking a relaxing day at the spa. They are only limited by their imagination.

Prescott plans on applying the money to her annual Kansas University basketball season tickets, and possibly for a short vacation.

“California Casualty protects American heroes, and we want to show our appreciation to the men and women who take care of America,’” said California Casualty Sr. Vice President, Mike McCormick.

“I usually stay in the background and do my job, but this award makes me feel very appreciated and really great,” Prescott added.
