National Nursing Week - Celebrating Excellence

Published: 22 May 2015

The annual Neuroscience Nursing Awards of Excellence Ceremony took place May 12 as part of National Nursing Week.  The event was a wonderful showcase of dedication, spirit, determination, strength, compassion and innovation.  It was an opportunity to pause and celebrate nurses and others who have gone above and beyond this last year making the Transition Plan a reality.  We would like to recognize this year’s awardees and again thank all the staff for their hard work and dedication to patient care.
