McKellar, Stephanie Evelyn “Evey”
As an ordained deacon and deeply compassionate student nurse, Evelyn McKellar, MA, BSN, exemplifies the best of the art and science of nursing. Her supervisors share multiple examples of McKellar listening to and advocating for difficult patients — especially those from vulnerable populations. By acknowledging the fear behind their anger, she has, on many occasions, softened their hearts, making them more receptive to health care. Her unwavering kindness extends to preceptors and peers. She will be a model nurse.
