The 2015 event took place on Friday, November 13, 2015 at the Sheraton Overland Park Hotel. The 2016 Nurse of the Year Awards will take place in the fall of 2016.
The Nurse of the Year Awards Gala is a black tie event honoring the dedication and commitment of the Kansas and Greater Kansas City medical community. The event seeks to recognize key local nurses at the height of their professional careers, create a network and collaboration of professional nursing groups in the greater metropolitan area and create a mechanism for nursing retention. All while generating support for the March of Dimes mission to improve the health of babies.
Nurse of the Year aligns perfectly with our mission and commitment to improving the lives of those affected by premature birth. The event follows a testimonial format and includes a broad array of award categories including, but not limited to, maternal and infant health. While celebrating and honoring outstanding nurses, guests are contributing to the March of Dimes’ vital mission. Money raised will fund annual community grants serving the Kansas and Greater Kansas City area.
