Taylor Wubben, RN, is a nurse at Avera McKennan Hospital working with oncology patients

o   “Taylor's skills were more than caring for the physical needs and requirements of checking vitals, administering medications, checking with doctors for answers to questions we had, she also cared by showing genuine kindness to both of us.”
