Eastern Wyoming College nursing student Miltone Nyambu, Casper, WY was nominated for the Casper Star Tribune Top Nurse. Nyambu was recently recognized in the nominated nurses section of the Casper Star Tribune A-Salute to Nurses.

In his nomination submission, nominator Susan Balfour, MSN, RN wrote “I realize that “real” nurses are supposed to be nominated for this recognition. Miltone exemplifies what being a nurse truly embodies even though he doesn’t have the letter RN after his name yet. I am honored to nominate Miltone for excellence in nursing. As he continues his education, he will gain knowledge, but the critical nursing components of caring, compassion, empathy, advocacy, and helping others come naturally for him.

“I read Ms. Balfour’s email and the nomination letter to the nursing class and we were all in tears, great job Miltone, we are blessed to have you in our program” said Suzey Delger, MSN,APRN (Ret) RN  Director of the EWC Nursing Program at the EWC Douglas Campus.
