Nurses Recognition Banquet- Nurse Nominations

Hello there,
It is with great excitement that the UW School of Nursing starts to look towards our annual Nurses Recognition Banquet, and officially begin accepting award nominations.
Everyone has had a nurse touch them in some way in their lives, and it's time to recognize them for all that they do. Nominate your favorite nurse, whether they helped you or a loved one heal, or they're the best on your staff.

Nominations are being accepted from now until the end of January. Winners will be honored at the Nurses Recognition Banquet on May 4, 2016. Please fill out your nominations HERE- https://nursing.uw.edu/alumni-friends/webform/nurses-recognition-banquet-awards-nomination-form

Please direct any questions to:
