Brandi BoothKNOXVILLE – Brandi Booth, Nurse Practitioner at the Knoxville Hospital & Clinics, has been honored as one of the 100 Great Iowa Nurses. Brandi, a Pleasantville native, has been the nurse practitioner for the Pleasantville Clinic for more than six years.

The 100 Great Iowa Nurses program recognizes outstanding nurses whose contributions to patients, colleagues and the profession are considered exceptional. Nurses from hospitals, long-term care facilities, schools and offices are all nominated, and the top 100 are chosen by a panel of reviewers who are all past honorees. The panel reviews each candidate and his or her qualities that show they go above and beyond the call of duty. The candidates are given points based on their concern for humanity, most significant contribution to the nursing profession and leadership and mentoring.

The group of 100 nurses who were chosen, including Brandi, will be honored on May 4 at the 100 Great Iowa Nurses Celebration in Des Moines.

“I am very proud of Brandi and the work she does every day to help improve the health of the people and communities we serve,” said Kevin Kincaid, Chief Executive Officer. “She is an excellent nurse practitioner and I am very happy that she has been publicly recognized for the role she plays in our organization.”
