Less than two years after graduating from ECPI University’s College of Nursing, Medical Careers Institute, Walter Edwards is already distinguishing himself. A nurse at Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters (CHKD) in Norfolk, Virginia, he recently received the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses.
