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 healthcare 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 healthcare. 

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