Hudson Valley Magazine pays tribute to the area’s top nurses in our May issue along with the 2019 Excellence in Nursing Awards coinciding with National Nurses Week.

The May issue will profile the top 20 nurses based on specific criteria and judged by the magazine's editors and medical professionals, all nominated nurses will be individually honored at the awards reception. The top rated nurse will be announced at the reception and given a special gift and a local high school senior will be awarded a $1,500 scholarship to pursue his or her dreams of becoming a nurse.

This elegant evening honors local nurses who have gone above and beyond the call of duty, selected by a panel of judges. The event features a cocktail hour, a three-course dinner, and an awards presentation. All nominated nurses are invited to attend as a way to say "thank you" for giving hope, help and healing.
Attendance: 300+

  • Christine M. Berte’, Chairperson of the School of Nursing and Director of Graduate Nursing Program at Mount St. Mary College
