The March of Dimes Nurse of the
Year Awards is an awards event and fundraiser that brings together the health
care community to recognize nursing excellence and achievements in research,
education, quality patient care, innovation and leadership. Awards are
presented to the most outstanding nurse within each of the 24 categories.
Nurses are first nominated by
peers, nurse managers, supervisors or even the families they have impacted. Each
nurse is then asked to submit an application to be considered. Each application
is carefully reviewed and scored by a committee of chief nursing officers and
other nurse leaders from the health care community in Ohio.
