The Nightingale Awards Committee is currently seeking nominations for exceptional nurses throughout the state of Michigan. The nomination period is now open and runs through March 1, 2022.

With 10 different nursing award categories, the Nightingale Awards for Nursing Excellence honors the best of the best, from frontline to administrative nurses to nurses that work on top research.

Nurses can be nominated by co-workers, peers, supervisors in recognition for their superior service and expertise in a variety of categories. There is even a “People’s Choice Award” in which patients, patient’s family and friends can tell their story of how an exceptional nurse impacted their life or the life of their loved one.

Nightingale Award winners receive $1,000 and a solid bronze statue of nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale.

To nominate a nurse, go to www.oakland.edu/nursing/nightingale or fill out the 2022 Nightingale Nomination Form by midnight on March 1, 2022.
