In the news: Nominate a star for the HCPro 2010 Nursing Image Awards

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, February 22, 2010

Nominations are open for the HCPro 2010 Nursing Image Awards, which honor nurses whose leadership, teamwork, or clinical expertise embodies an image of nursing excellence and contributes to improving patient care, quality outcomes, nurse satisfaction, and the healthcare environment.

HCPro is searching for nurse leaders and staff who have helped elevate the image of nursing. Awards will be presented to an individual or team of nurses and to a nursing leader in two categories:

  • The image of nursing in leadership: Honors a nursing leader who embodies a positive image of nursing through his or her leadership excellence.
  • The image of nursing in clinical practice: Recognizes individual nurses or nursing teams who portray a positive image of nursing through their clinical excellence.

The image of nursing is woven through all the components of the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®, particularly within Component II: Structural empowerment. Placing the image of nursing within the concept of empowerment ensures that nurses take responsibility for promoting a positive picture of the industry.

The winners will be announced in October at the HCPro Nursing Leadership Summit in Orlando.

Editor's note: The deadline for the HCPro 2010 Nursing Image Awards nominations is July 31, 2010. For more information about the awards and to submit nominations, visit www.hcpro.com/2010NursingImageAwards.
