Excellence in Nursing

Help New Hampshire Magazine, in partnership with the New Hampshire Nurses Association, honor the unsung heroes of the state’s medical community by nominating nurses in a variety of vital specialties.

Nurses are key members of any health care team, but their skills and contributions are often unrecognized. We want to celebrate the very best in nursing – those who go above and beyond to comfort, heal and educate – to bring to light how critical nursing is to achieving comprehensive health care. If you know of such a nurse, then please consider nominating him or her in one of the categories below.

Finalists will be featured in the May 2018 issue of New Hampshire Magazine and honored at a special awards event on May 22, 2018.

Nominations will be accepted starting September 29, 2017 and the deadline for nominations is January 4, 2018.
