New Hampshire Magazine, in partnership with the New Hampshire Nurses Association, congratulates the 2019 Excellence in Nursing Award recipients. This award honors the unsung heroes of the state’s health care community.

Nurses are key members of any healthcare team, but their skills and contributions are often unrecognized. Join us as we 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 healthcare.

Recipients will be featured in the May 2019 issue of New Hampshire Magazine and will be honored at a special awards reception on May 23, 2019.
