The March of Dimes Nurse of the Year Awards is a black tie gala that recognizes exceptional nurses from across Kansas and the Greater Kansas City metropolitan area. Nurses play a vital role in our society and are the unsung heroes of the healthcare provider community. We are proud to honor the work they do.
The March of Dimes has a rich history of partnering with the healthcare industry, from their successful eradication of polio to searching for the root causes of prematurity. It’s that spirit that inspires the Nurse of the Year Awards. From neonatal and pediatric care to mental health and advance practice, these awards recognize the contribution that registered nurses are making in our community and help fund the mission of the March of Dimes to improve the health of babies.
HOW TO NOMINATE A NURSE
Colleagues, patients and families are encouraged to nominate nurses in twenty one different categories and to join us as we honor their selflessness, dedication and passion for the profession of nursing. Help us say thank you to the thousands of nurses who make all of our lives a little easier.
The Awards Selection Committee is comprised of healthcare professionals from across Kansas and the Kansas City Metropolitan area. All nomination forms and applications will be blinded to ensure that the identity of the nominee and their employer is concealed during the scoring process. The selection committee will choose finalists for each category and all finalists will be notified in September 2015. The award recipient for each category will be announced at the Nurse of the Year Awards Gala! All nominees and applicants are invited to attend the Nurse of the Year Awards Gala. Category Finalists will receive two complimentary tickets, for them and a guest, to attend the Awards Gala on Friday, November 13th.
Additional tickets to the event can be purchased by contacting the March of Dimes at
