FUND THE MISSION

2019 EVENT OVERVIEW

Ohio Nurse of the Year Awards is an awards event and fundraiser that brings together the health care community in Ohio to recognize nursing excellence and achievements in research, education, quality patient care, innovation and leadership. On Friday, November 1 in Columbus, Ohio we hosted 600 nurses, nurse leaders and their guests, representing more than 35 health care ogranizations as we honored the 23 category winners.  These nurse winners demonstrate exceptional leadership, excellence and service in nursing.  The event raised over $110,000 to support March of Dimes in the fight for the health of all moms and babies.
