Not Just a Nurse: Miss Colorado

Miss Colorado reminded us all this past weekend why she, like all of the wonderful, caring nurses at Coliseum Health System, is not JUST a nurse…

She didn’t sing and she didn’t dance, instead, Miss Colorado gave a heartwarming speech about being a nurse during the talent portion of Miss America Sunday night.

Dressed in purple scrubs with a stethoscope around her neck, Kelley Johnson talked about a patient with Alzheimer’s disease who made an impression on her life.

“Every nurse has a patient that reminds them why they became a nurse in the first place,” Johnson began. “Mine was Joe.”
