Honor the nurse who has touched your life by nominating them today for the Nurse of the Year Awards. The March of Dimes is accepting nominations from patients, friends, families and colleagues of nurses from across the state now through July 1, 2014.
Through an elegant gala and awards ceremony, the March of Dimes recognizes an array of nursing categories and engages the medical community across the spectrum while raising funds in support of the March of Dimes mission to improve the health of babies. Nurses will be honored at a gala dinner October 25 at the Marriott Northwest in Brooklyn Center.
Patients, friends, co-workers and other health professionals nominate nurses in 16 categories including the Distinguished Nurse of the Year. Other categories include:

In order to be considered for the award, nominees must fill out an application. Applications are blinded and scored based on credentials, certifications and nursing education, their proudest outcomes, leadership, professional associations and achievements. Blinded applications are scored and reviewed by the volunteer Nurse of the Year Committee.
Individuals may choose to nominate more than one person or nominate the same person in more than one category. This will be particularly helpful if the nominee fits a specialized category and may also be a candidate for the Distinguished Nurse of the Year.
