Farifield CT
Unfortunately, for the 2014 Fairfield County nursing awards, we have not been able to find a health care organization to host the event for that area. If you have a nominee that meets the criteria, you may be able to submit the nomination thru the New Haven event on a first come, first serve based on space availability. Please send your inquiries to or call the New Haven Nightingale Hot Line at 203-859-6765.
