These nurses were recognized at the sixth annual Nursing Excellence Awards recognition banquet on November 14 at the Indianapolis Marriott North.
During this year’s nomination period, the selection committee received 206 nominations for 150 different network nurses. Some nominees received multiple nominations.
“This year’s selection process was very difficult because we had so many deserving nominees,” says Lorrie Ramsey, R.N., chairperson of the Nursing Excellence Award planning committee. “Our nine-person selection committee read and scored each nomination based on the award’s criteria. In some categories, the scores of the first and second place nominees were separated by just a few hundredths of a point. The strength of the nominations really reflects the caliber of nurses in our network and makes me proud to be one of them. ”
