Now in our 5th year, the Outstanding Nurses Awards continues to seek the best nurses in the Twin Cities.
Each February, we at Mpls.St.Paul Magazine ask the nursing community and the public to share the names of individuals they believe exemplify an outstanding nurse in the Twin Cities. This year, nominations flooded in from colleagues, managers, institutions, family members, friends, and—yes, patients—who were proud of a nurse’s work. The stories that people shared are inspiring, joyful, and at times heartbreaking, but overall make us proud to know how these nurses are sharing their talents in our community. Together, the stories paint a full-bodied picture of a profession that in one way or another touches us all.
These awards are also not possible without our 2016 sponsors. Our thanks goes to our participating sponsor: Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. And also to our on-site event partners: Hennepin County Medical Center, Minnesota Oncology, and University of Minnesota Health.
