Three nurses from Wayne Memorial Hospital were named 2003 recipients of the Great 100 award given to top registered nurses in the state.

Connie Bandy, in health promotions; Rebecca West of the Eastern Regional Surgery Center; and Jackie Williams from labor and delivery were honored during ceremonies in Greensboro last weekend.

Ms. Bandy has been a nurse for 38 years. Ms. West has 32 years of experience in the field and Ms. Williams has 15.

"The Great 100 Inc." was established in 1989 by a group of volunteer nurses to recognize excellence in the nursing practice and raise money for nursing scholarships in North Carolina.

Since its inception, more than $140,000 has been awarded.
