What is the Nightingale Award?
The Nightingale Luminary Award was established in 1985 to acknowledge the outstanding nurses in our region, whose hard work and dedication improves other's health through their advocacy, innovation, and leadership.
This award was named after Florence Nightingale in honor of her many years of service as a leader, innovator, and advocator of the Nursing profession. She was known as a pioneer of her time, and her practices still influence the field of nursing. Today, new pioneers work hard to revolutionize nursing and make an impact in our communities.
