New Jersey Nurses Raise Funds For Singing River Nurses

Some Atlantic City nurses are in South Mississippi this week with a gift for fellow nurses in Jackson County.

On Monday, the nurses from AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center (ARMC) presented Singing River Hospital System's CEO Chris Anderson and his nursing team with $5,000.

The center's Nursing Advisory Council organized a fundraiser after receiving a letter from former ARMC nurse Denise Rajnec, who now works at Ocean Springs Hospital.

"Her touching letter described the incredible devastation the storm caused and the lasting impact it had on their lives," explained Susan Fisher Brown, RN, of ARMC's Emergency Department and co-chair of the NAC.

"Her gripping story motivated us to help them. These incredible nurses compassionately provided care to their community despite the devastation that personally impacted them and their families."
