Help us celebrate and honor the outstanding nurses in our community!

We are looking for nurses who are exceptional in their profession, going above and beyond in their work!

Anyone can submit a nomination, including peers, doctors, patients, and family members/loved ones of patients who have received care.

We are looking for outstanding nurses in the following categories: Hospital Setting, Clinic Setting, Nurse Practitioner, Nurse Educator, Administrative Leadership, Student Nurse (pre-board certification), Women’s Health, Emergency Situations, Children’s Health, Long-Term Care, Cancer Treatment, Intensive Care, Mental Health, Researcher, Military, Midwife, Public Health, Hospice, Informatics, and School Nurse (K-12). In addition, we will award a Rising Star Award to a nurse with fewer than five years since certification, and a Lifetime Achievement Award to a nurse with more than twenty years since certification. Please note all nominees, other than those for Student Nurse, must be board-certified registered nurses.

Submissions will close: April 16, 2018
