Awards will be presented in three categories:
Staff nurses—floor or department leaders who have found the time to provide inspiration and innovation as they deliver day-today care.
Senior-level nurse administrators who have developed programs or initiatives that improve the quality of healthcare delivery.
The Lillian Carter Exemplary Acts in Nursing Award will honor a nurse or nursing program that in the past year has engaged in extraordinary acts of providing healthcare in areas of special need, either domestically or globally. The award is named after President Jimmy Carter’s late mother, affectionately known as Miss Lillian, who worked in community hospitals and nursing homes before, late in her career, joining the Peace Corps to extend that service around the world.
