We are proud to say that Melissa Conradi Long, who graduated from PBA’s School of Nursing in 2009, has gone above and beyond her normal call of duty in the nursing field. She is featured in this video for Broward Health Medical Center for being a stand-out nurse who is characterized as being caring, compassionate, and understanding to all of her patients while also bringing them joy and making them smile. The video follows the story of Melissa with one of her patients, Valentina, who was going through chemotherapy treatments. It depicts the journey they go on together and the relationship that they develop with one another. Give the video a watch and join with us in being grateful to be able to send out such amazing nurses into the world.

Melissa states, “A year ago today, I had the honor and privilege of being a part of something so special. This video was presented at a gala in front of hundreds of people in an attempt to raise money for my hospital. I was surprised with tickets to the gala and got to share that night with one of the most amazing girls I’ve ever met. V, you will forever be in my heart. Thank you for all the memories and for impacting my life in the way that you did. I’m a better person because of you.”
