Excellence in Nursing
Help New Hampshire Magazine, in partnership with the New Hampshire Nurses Association, honor the unsung heroes of the state’s health care community by nominating nurses in a variety of vital specialties. Nominations are open to all nurses practicing in New Hampshire.
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.
Finalists are featured in the May 2018 issue of New Hampshire Magazine and were honored at a special awards event on May 22, 2018.
Check back in the fall for updates on next year's awards.
