Nominate a Nurse For Prestigious Nightingale Award from Oakland University
Know a nurse who deserves special recognition? Nominations are being accepted for Oakland University's School of Nursing’s 25th Annual Nightingale Awards for Nursing Excellence
Here is your chance to show the special nurse who made a difference in your life or the life of a loved one how much he or she meant to you.
Did her impeccable care make your hospital stay more pleasant? Did he ensure that you were kept apprised of your treatment options? Or perhaps she was like last year’s People’s Choice category winner, Norma Spryszak, oncology nurse, who not only developed a comfort cart of CDs and DVDs for patients to enjoy as they received chemotherapy treatments, but also demonstrated compassion as she held and read to a young child so her father could spend the last few minutes of his wife’s life with her in her room.
The People’s Choice Award category of the Nightingale Awards for Nursing Excellence, sponsored by Hour Detroit Magazine, is presented to a nurse who demonstrates exceptional practice and inspires others. Anyone can nominate a nurse, quickly and easily, by submitting a one page form (available at www.oakland.edu/nightingale), now through February 3, 2013. The winner of this award (as well as the other eight categories) will be featured in Hour Detroit Magazine, receive a solid bronze statue of nursing pioneer, Florence Nightingale and a check for $1,000.
The winners and runners up in all categories will be honored at The Nightingale Awards for Nursing Excellence on May 9, 2013 at The Mirage in Clinton Township. All nominated nurses will receive a certificate of honor.
Submit your nominations via mail to the Oakland University School of Nursing, Nightingale Nominations, Attention: Cynthia Rutledge, 3057 Human Health Building, Rochester, MI, 48309 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
