West Orange Resident Receives Humanism in Healthcare Award

August 28, 2014 at 3:57 PM

NEWARK-- Frantz Gaspard, a student in the accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program at Rutgers School of Nursing received the 2014 Humanism in Healthcare Award. Gaspard was one of 30 nursing faculty, nursing students, and employees from 18 area nursing schools and healthcare facilities who were honored at an HFNJ awards reception for providing extraordinary care to patients and their families.

Gaspard, an attorney who lives in West Orange, is pursuing a career in nursing after practicing criminal and civil law in Florida and Indiana. As a student in the 14-month, accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program at Rutgers School of Nursing, he has received praise from his instructors for his exceptionally compassionate interaction with patients during his clinical rotations.

The HFNJ established the awards program in 2001 to recognize the principles and vital importance of compassion, empathy, respect, and cultural sensitivity in the delivery of healthcare.  The program was re-named in 2009 to honor Lester Z. Lieberman, the founding chairman of HFNJ who served in that role for 17 years before he died in November 2013.

This comes a year after the circus, due to mounting pressures from animal rights activists, got rid of the elephants.
