Nominations Now Being Accepted for March of Dimes Nurse of the Year Awards

July 7, 2014

The March of Dimes is now accepting nominations for the Georgia March of Dimes 2014 Nurse of the Year Awards. Nurses who have demonstrated excellence and leadership may be nominated in 16 diverse categories of nursing. Last year, more than 700 nurses were nominated from across the state of Georgia.

To be eligible for an award, nurses must be nominated by a colleague, peer or a patient whom they have served. Nominees may have achievements in research and education or at the front lines of care from advanced practice to critical care and maternal/newborn care. Award recipients will be determined by a distinguished selection committee comprised of health care professionals.

Through Nurse of the Year Awards, the March of Dimes recognizes nurses who demonstrate exceptional patient care, compassion, and service. Whether serving as a health care provider, educator, researcher, or chapter volunteer/advisor, nurses play a critical role in improving the health of Georgia residents.

To submit a nomination, visit Nurse of the Year (http://bit.ly/1mXhxoQ) by July 15th.  The awards will be presented at a gala event on November 1, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency in Buckhead.
