Excellence in Nursing Awards 2020

Until recent events reminded the world of just how much we need them, nurses were the unsung heroes of the medical community. These talented individuals provide their skills and sacrifice on a daily basis, and now thanks to COVID-19, we have a glimpse of the debt we owe. New Hampshire Magazine, in partnership with the New Hampshire Nurses Association, is proud to say thanks to them all by calling out a few in our Excellence in Nursing Awards.

The New Hampshire Magazine Cubicle is dark. Due to social distancing, live music is taking a bit of a hit. However, with the help, talent and can-do attitude of local musicians, the music will continue.

For now, the Cubicle is virtual. Support live music, sing and dance along at home (because no one can see you,) and when this all blows over, go back out and see these people play live.

Tune in and watch.

The plague, the Spanish flu. We all read about them when we studied history in school. Such horrors seemed like artifacts of the past, long-ago tales of unimaginable death.

But in this respect, it is the same as it was in past pandemics — it will change us, in ways large and small. We talked to people in various fields to get their perspectives.

We’ve Got Bette Davis’s Plaque

Some of the hikes in New Hampshire can take you to some really weird, fascinating stuff. Like ghost towns. And airplane crash sites. Art installations. Carnivorous plants. This one brings you to a plaque in the woods installed by movie star Bette Davis.
