Excellence in Nursing Awards: Nominate a Nurse

Excellence in Nursing Awards logo

Hudson Valley Magazine proudly presents its 7th Annual Excellence in Nursing Awards — and we need your help!

We are looking for nurses who go above and beyond their call of duty; who hail from all healthcare settings, including hospitals, private practices, and schools; and who specialize in all fields, like women’s health, hospice, pediatrics, research, and education. 

Coinciding with National Nurses Week, our 2014 Excellence in Nursing Awards pays tribute to the area’s top nurses, 20 of whom will be judged by the magazine’s editors and medical professionals and profiled in our May 2014 issue. All nominated nurses will be honored during our awards reception, the top-rated nurse given a special gift, and a local high school senior awarded with a $1,500 scholarship to pursue his or her dreams of becoming a nurse.

Nominate a nurse from your organization, and help us honor those who exemplify the profession’s best standards of practice.

To be eligible for our consideration, nurses must meet the following criteria:

  • RNs and LPNs (full- or part-time)
  • Made a significant impact on patient care
  • Gone “beyond the call”
  • Demonstrated excellence
  • Shown commitment to the community served
  • Achieved life-long professionalism

Please complete the following nomination form by January 31, 2014:
