2016 Nursing Excellence Awards
Gwynedd Mercy University Frances M. Maguire School of Nursing and Health Professions is pleased to request nominations for the Nursing Excellence Award. These awards are supported by funds donated by Nancy and Fred Allegrezza to honor nurses who have provided extraordinary service to patients, families, and our community. We are seeking nominations for this honor that will include an award and a monetary gift to be presented to the recipients at a ceremony at Gwynedd Mercy University in May 2016.
Nurses work in many settings and provide a wide array of services; yet the significance of their work is often overlooked. This award program provides an opportunity for the nursing community and those involved in the healthcare delivery system to recognize the important role that nurses perform.
Any licensed nurse (LPN or RN) working in any setting in Bucks or Montgomery County may be nominated. The nominee must have worked as a nurse, either full-time or part-time, for the past two years. (See enclosed flyer.) Anyone or any group of individuals on behalf of a nurse may submit nominations. The nomination must describe the nominee’s outstanding performance in each of the areas on the application form and must include the nominee’s curriculum vitae or resume. Applications must be submitted to Dr. Hollingsworth, Gwynedd Mercy University, Frances M. Maguire School of Nursing and Health Professions by March 18, 2016. A selection committee comprised of nursing leaders from the local community will review each application.
We hope you will take the opportunity to nominate an outstanding nurse in our community for this prestigious award.
