Health Matters: Local Nurses Earn National Awards

Two nurses from Arkansas Children's Hospital win service awards.
LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Health matters to two Little Rock nurses working at Arkansas Children's Hospital.

Because of their dedication to nursing, the ladies received national recognition.

With only a few moments to spare for an interview, we talked to Belva Dyer and Linda Easter.

The two nurses keep busy at Arkansas Children's Hospital.

Saving lives is a 24-hour kind of job.

Dyer said, "I love the social bond the children and families have together."

It's that passion that earned both women the 2014 HERO Nurse Service award.

They're two of ten -- in the entire country -- to receive the award from a medical manufacturing company.

Dyer said, "It was wonderful, overwhelming, just such a joy. My heart is just elated over all the national attention."

To be nominated nurses made lasting impressions on their peers, patients, profession and communities.

Easter said, "That is quite an honor to me."

The top ten heroes received the most web votes and now some well deserved recognition.
