The winners of HCPro’s 2010 Nursing Image Awards have been announced, and this year’s winners are nurses whose leadership, teamwork, and clinical expertise embody an image of nursing excellence, and who make a difference in improving patient care, quality outcomes, nurse satisfaction, and the healthcare environment.

Hundreds of entries were received for two categories:

  • Image of Nursing in Leadership: This category honors nursing leaders who embody a positive image of nursing through their leadership excellence and who have served as inspiring leaders, mentors, and role models 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.
  • Image of Nursing in Clinical Practice: This category recognizes nurses who portray a positive image of nursing through their clinical excellence, and who have made significant contributions to improve patient outcomes, patient safety/quality initiatives, staff satisfaction, practice changes, research or evidence-based practice projects, interdisciplinary collaboration, or organizational goals.


After weeks of careful deliberations, the judges chose the winners and runners up in each category.
