She is a current member of the Emergency Nurses Association and an advocate for the Board Certified Emergency Nursing exam. She received the Faculty Award from the Virginia Beach School of Practical Nursing, for the graduate who 'has achieved excellence in both the academic and clinical settings and who best exemplifies the total integration of program philosophy to professional performance' (March 1999). In 2010, Mrs. Buettner was nominated as nurse of the year by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. She was a finalist for the 2016 Atlanta March of Dime's Nurse of the Year Award.
