Melissa Nester named Outer Banks Hospital Employee of the Month for December

Melissa Nester, registered nurse at The Center for Healthy Living, is The Outer Banks Hospital’s December 2020 Employee of the Month. She joined The Outer Banks Hospital team in May 2019.

Nester has been a valued team member in multiple departments across the hospital. Her compassion and ability to connect with patients and their families are some of her most valued qualities.

She is said to display a “can do” attitude at all times and is eager to help where she can. She has taken on many new roles and assignments during her time with TOBH, learning new processes along the way. Some of these include Mother/Baby, Emergency Department, The Wellness Center, COVID-19 screening, Clinical Coordinator and Occupational Health.

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Nester has been an integral part of the Resource Team, covering screening and greeting stations. “Each day, Nester remains kind, patient and compassionate with visitors and patients, especially when they have questions or concerns about COVID-19,” stated a TOBH press release.

Upon hearing that she had been chosen as the December 2020 Employee of the Month, Nester stated, “Thank you, I am blown away and honored to be selected as employee of the month for December.” She continued, “I am grateful to be able to come to work and have awesome co-workers that I truly enjoy working with.
