After receiving her award, Kurruk stated she is not retiring, and that she still wakes up every day ready to come to work.
“I have been a nurse longer than I have been anything else in my life,” she said. “I look at every situation as a nurse and continue to learn and teach as a nurse. I am thankful for everything the people at Syringa have taught me. Carry on!”
