Sanford nurse wins excellence award

BISMARCK, N.D. - A Sanford nurse in Bismarck is being recognized for her work with ill children.

Kayla Ehrlich, a pediatric oncology nurse, won a Daisy Award which honors outstanding nurses. Ehrlich says a family from Williston nominated her. She remembers when that family came in for their first treatment.

“I think when I first met this family, the patient was nervous and didn't know what to expect. So you just find common ground and go from there and build a relationship with them because they're there a lot,” said Ehrlich.

Ehrlich added that patient is making progress and the prognosis is good.
