At The Medical Center, we value our nursing staff and want to celebrate, honor, and recognize our outstanding nurses. To that end, the Recruitment, Retention and Recognition Council created the Nurse of the Year recognition.
Nominees go before a selection committee prior to being voted on by nursing staff. The selection committee evaluates each nurse’s demonstrated leadership, excellence in customer service, community involvement and commitment to the nursing profession.
