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.
