The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) is now accepting nominations for the 2014 Nursing Excellence Awards. In honor of National Nurses Week, which begins this year on May 6, DPH takes the opportunity to recognize nurses at the state, district and county levels for their contributions and commitment to public health nursing.

Nominations are open for two awards: the State Office Nursing Consultation Excellence Award and the Public Health Nursing Practice Excellence Award.

The nominees and recipients of both awards will be announced at a celebration of National Nurses Week on May 8. Nominations are due April 14. For more information and to receive a nomination form, contact Shannon Hall at
