Celebrating Excellence

This year, the Professional Excellence in Nursing Awards, Professional Nurse Development Program recertifications and promotions, and recognition of Certified Nurses were all recognized during National Nurses Week, which included a luau-themed celebration on May 4, 2016.

The event included a special keynote presentation by award-winning filmmaker and photographer Carolyn Jones, “The American Nurse: Healing America.” In 2012, Jones began capturing the personal stories and images of nurses at work. The American Nurse project includes a book and a documentary film. Jones’ presentation was made possible with support from Boone Hospital Foundation

Thank you to everyone who joined us and to everyone who helped make this a fun celebration for our nurses. And thank you to all of our nurses who uphold our commitment to our patients every day!
