All registered nurses and nurse leaders (BSN, director level and above) are eligible and can be nominated by colleagues, patients, families and all members of the public. You’ll find the nomination form at www.AJC.com/nominate-RN. The deadline for nominations is December 31, 2021.
More than 1,000 nurses were nominated for last year’s awards. Some were nurses who held the hands of dying patients who could not be with their loved ones because of no-visitor policies. Many had switched gears from treating relatively routine illnesses to dealing with the sickest of the sick.
