We do a lot of these professional-services lists at the magazine. Best Doctors, Best Lawyers. You know the drill. But one of these lists stands out for me. It’s our Excellence in Nursing Awards. These people do a lot of hard work, and they appreciate the recognition like no other profession does. We do a big dinner for them. Last year, I think we played host to 400 people. Gloria Campos emcees, calling the names of each finalist and then naming the winners in various categories. I get to hand out the awards. We’ve done this two years. Both times, seeing how happy the winners get, I’ve cried.
Do you know a great nurse, someone who pours every ounce of his or her being into the job? Then take a few minutes to nominate that person. The deadline is September 6.
