March of Dimes Rochester is preparing to honor nurses who exemplify an extraordinary level of patient care, compassion and customer service. Nominations for the 2018 Rochester Nurse of the Year Awards are open through July 20.
Exceptional nurses employed in the Rochester area are eligible. A selection committee comprised of health care professionals will review the confidential nomination forms and announce the award finalists this fall. After a blinded review process, 20 nurses will be honored at an awards gala on Nov. 12 at Hyatt Regency Rochester.
Whether serving as health care provider, educator, researcher and/or adviser, nurses play a critical role in advancing March of Dimes’ mission to fight for the health of every mom and baby. The Nurse of the Year initiative supports this mission while recognizing exceptional nurses throughout the area and celebrating the profession.
