The Washington Chapter of the March of Dimes honored local nurses at the 11th Annual 2013 Nurse of the Year Awards on Thursday, Nov. 21 at the Meydenbauer Conference Center.
The Nurse of the Year Awards program recognizes exceptional nurses, creates awareness of professional excellence and promotes the future of the nursing profession, while helping advance the mission of the March of Dimes. Whether serving as a health care provider, educator, researcher, or chapter volunteer/advisor, these nurses have played a critical role in improving the health of Washington’s community.
One hundred and fifty nominations were submitted in Washington State. Twelve nurses received top honors with five award winners from Swedish Medical Center (SMC).
