Nurse retires from Mayo Clinic Health System after 45 years

After 45 years on the job, a local nurse is calling it a career.

Jeanne Rosendale marked the end of her career Monday at Mayo Clinic Health System.

Rosendale worked in the labor and delivery department.

For her final day, staff from around the hospital came together for a celebration of Rosendale’s career.

She says while she has been involved in countless big moments, it was helping in all ways that was special.

“Throughout the years, it has been the best place for me, where I have the most joy, working with those patients whether its working with someone who is having a hard time through their labor, having a good time through their labor, being able to celebrate with them when that baby is born,” said Jeanne Rosendale, Registered Nurse, Mayo Clinic Health System.

Her retirement comes exactly 45 years after she started at Mayo Clinic Health System.
