The Nightingale Awards for Excellence in Nursing are non-competitive and inclusive of all health care settings - hospitals, home health care, health centers, schools, health departments, long-term care facilities, nursing schools, agencies, and medical practices- all are warmly invited to participate. RNs and LPNs (full or part-time) who demonstrate excellence may be considered for recognition if they are involved in clinical practice, leadership, and/or education.


Nurses receiving the Nightingale Award for Excellence in Nursing will be individually recognized at the Program and invited on stage to receive a Certificate of Recognition, a Nightingale insignia lapel pin and a commemorative gift.  A nurse can only be nominated once in their lifetime for this award.
