This spring has been an exciting time for Carly Hutchings Caggiano ‘01 BSN, RN. On April 29th, she gave birth to her first child, Catherine, and was honored with the Essence of Nursing Award by Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH).
Caggiano has been a staff nurse at BWH for 11 years. Working with critically ill patients in the Medical ICU, she looks to them—and listens to them—to help direct their care. She explains, “I consider myself an expert ICU nurse because of my ability to care, even when there is no cure. Sometimes, our patients are telling us exactly what they need to end their suffering or aid in their recovery.”
