    Nurse of the Year Awards

    Saturday, November 02, 2013
    Time: 6:00 PM
    Registration Time:
    Renaissance Columbus Downtown Hotel
    50 N. Third St.
    Columbus, OH 43215

    The First Annual Ohio Nurse of the Year Awards is a state-wide event that recognizes exceptional nurses, creates awareness of professional excellence, and promotes the future of the nursing profession, all while helping to advance the mission of the March of Dimes: to promote the health of babies by preventing premature birth, birth defects, and infant mortality. As the March of Dimes celebrates it's 75th Anniversary, we recognize that nurses are at the forefront of our mission and what we've accomplished! The Nurse of the Year selection committee will review hundreds of applications across 18 defined categories ranging from Advanced Practice to Women’s Health. The finalists will be honored at this special, formal evening gala. Nurses play a vital role in our society and are the unsung heroes of the health care provider community.  We are proud to honor the work they do.

    The Nurse of the Year Awards will have sponsorship levels beginning at $1,500 for a reserved table of ten continuing up through varying sponsorship levels from $2,500- $15,000. The March of Dimes is thrilled that UnitedHealthcare is the Diamond level, Presenting Sponsor of this event.
