Nurse of the Year

Nurse of the Year Awards is an awards event and fundraiser that brings together the health care community to recognize nursing excellence and achievements in research, education, quality patient care, innovation and leadership. Eighteen awards will be presented to the most outstanding nurse within each category.

Nurses are first nominated by peers, nurse managers, supervisors or even the families they have impacted. Following, each nurse is asked to submit an application to be considered. Each application is carefully reviewed and scored by a committee of Chief Nursing Officers and other nurse leaders from the health care community.   
                     
We invite you to discuss the variety of options available for Nurse of the Year sponsorship to help you reach an active and engaged audience. By working with your March of Dimes representative, you can create a program that meets your goals and objectives and targets audiences in your area, and even across the country. Together we can reach key audiences in your community.
