‘100 Great Iowa Nurses’ Announces 2013 Winners
We’ve all met at least one outstanding nurse whose courage, compassion, and commitment to the nursing profession stands out. Each year, 100 Great Iowa Nurses are selected from a pool of hundreds of admirable candidates and honored by the state of Iowa, fellow nurses and community leaders.
This year’s 100 Great Iowa Nurses will be honored on May 5, 2013—the beginning of National Nurses Week—at a reception in the Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium in Des Moines. Recipients from prior years are invited back to be recognized, and the 2013 awardees will invite family, friends and colleagues to share in the recognition of their outstanding achievements.
Created by the Iowa Nurses Association, the Iowa Nurses Foundation, the Iowa Hospital Association and the University of Iowa College of Nursing to honor outstanding nurses from across the state, this annual program recognizes nursing professionals who have displayed the highest levels of professionalism and commitment to their patients.
Nurses selected for this honor represent many sectors of health care, including hospitals, long-term care facilities, as well as school and office nurses. This is a statewide event that belongs to the people of Iowa, and is made possible through the generous support of the program’s sponsors.
