Nominations are now open for the 2023 awards. The ceremony will be held in May, during National Nurses Week.
All registered nurses and nurse leaders (BSN, director level and above) are eligible and can be nominated by colleagues, patients, families and members of the public. You can find the nomination form by clicking here. The deadline for nominations is December 31.
More than 850 nurses were nominated for the 2022 awards, including Rose Horton. Horton, a registered nurse at Emory Decatur Hospital, received an award for her laser focus on improving maternal morbidity and mortality rates, and attacking the problems of racism and implicit bias that can alter patient outcomes.
