Fi­nal weeks to send nom­i­na­tions for Ex­cel­lence in Nurs­ing awards

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Do you know an in­spir­ing and in­no­va­tive nurse leader? Only two weeks re­main to send in nom­i­na­tions for Mod­ern Healthcare’s inau­gu­ral Ex­cel­lence in Nurs­ing Awards. The dead­line is Oct. 2.

Some 3 mil­lion nurses work in com­mu­nity hos­pi­tals, doc­tors’ of­fices, re­tail clin­ics and the C-suites of the na­tion’s largest health sys­tems. These highly trained pro­fes­sion­als in­no­vate, lead and serve on the job ev­ery day. These new awards are de­signed to rec­og­nize their con­tri­bu­tions. The pro­gram is be­ing con­ducted in part­ner­ship with the Lil­lian Carter Cen­ter for Global Health & So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity at the Emory Univer­sity School of Nurs­ing in At­lanta. One of the new awards will honor Lil­lian Carter’s life and work.

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-to-day 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 as a nurse in com­mu­nity hos­pi­tals and nurs­ing homes, be­fore join­ing the Peace Corps late in her ca­reer to ex­tend that ser­vice around the world.
