Nursing Excellence Award

Congratulations to our very own Sue Averill, as she received an award from Nurse Week, this last Friday for Volunteering and Service. 

Nurse week recognizes registered nurses who have given themselves in outstanding humanitarian or heroic ways by providing nursing care, skills and expertise in outreach to the community, either at home or abroad, to improve the lives, well-being and health care of others.

Gannett Healthcare group (who publishes, Nursing Spectrum, NurseWeek and others) is a nursing and healthcare communications company. is a great resource for nurses, as it provides local and national nursing news, job information, nursing continuing education and a large thriving nursing community.

The mission of the company is fairly simple – to enrich the professional lives of nurses and healthcare professionals, as well as celebrate their unique contributions to society.

So, each year, seeks nominations for Nursing Excellence Awards in six categories:
                Advancing and Leading the Profession
                Clinical Nursing, Inpatient
                Home, Community and Ambulatory Care
                Staff/Patient Management
                Education and Mentorship
                Volunteerism and Service has created a great national program of recognizing extraordinary contributions nurses make to their patients, each other, and the nursing profession.

Please join in congratulating Sue in receiving this award!   So, thanks Sue! We wouldn't be here without your hard work and tremendous dedication.
