Christopher Martin ’07 will receive the 2016 Excellence in Nursing Practice Award from University of Pittsburg Medical Center Horizon hospitals. Martin works at both UPMC Horizon campuses and enjoys learning the variety of things medical-surgical-telemetry nursing has to offer. He writes, “…the Malone University School of Nursing did an excellent and professional job of digging the foundation for my nursing career. I so appreciate the Malone faculty and the special care they give to their students in training them up to be strong, professional nurses." Martin and his wife, Jasmine, live in Hermitage, Pennsylvania.
