In a few days, the winners of HCPro's 2010 Nursing Image Awards will be announced. This week, I'm taking time to think about the hundreds who were nominated in the leadership category, which honors a nursing leader who has served as an inspiring leader, mentor, and role model to other nurses.

I have had the very great privilege of again serving as one of the judges and I have spent the last few weeks reading through hundreds of nomination essays. The leadership category is populated by nominations for chief nursing officers and nurse executives at organizations across the country. The category honors a nursing leader who embodies a positive image of nursing through his or her leadership excellence and who has served as an inspiring leader, mentor, and role model to nurses as they strive to portray an image of professionalism in all that they do, whether by overcoming significant challenges, spearheading change, or inspiring teamwork that resulted in achievement of operational goals/objectives.
