It goes without saying that nurses are a significant asset to the overall organization.  Every nurse contributes to making the health system an organization that has a healthy work environment, where team members can work collaboratively and collegially.  As such, we take great pride in celebrating nursing excellence and recognizing those whose outstanding contributions serve as a model for us all.
