Nurse Takes Final Walk to Work

 In Nurses Weekly

It was a bittersweet surprise for a retiring Gloucester County nurse. On her final walk to work, coworkers greeted her with hugs and balloons.

Anne Chiefari has been an operating nurse at Jefferson Washington Township Hospital for 41 years. For the past 17 years, she has been walking a mile to work every day.

She started walking when her car broke down back in 2002. Since then, it became Chiefari’s regular exercise routine.

What Chiefari didn’t know before her last stroll to work was that more than a dozen of her coworkers were waiting around the corner to surprise her by strolling alongside her on that final walk to work.
