BEDFORD, Texas – The annual list of the Metroplex’s best nurses is out, and seven nurses from Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Hurst-Euless-Bedford find themselves honored among the region’s Great 100 Nurses.
“I always enjoyed taking care of people and knew at an early age I wanted to pursue the health care profession,” said Patty Fjordbak, R.N. in endoscopic services. “Nursing allows me to pursue my passion. Creating trusting relationships with patients at their time of need is so rewarding and satisfying.”
