For the past 16 years, the New Mexico Center for Nursing Excellence has recognized nurses throughout New Mexico for their outstanding work through the Nursing Excellence Awards. We believe that this year, more than ever, it is of the utmost importance to honor nurses for their dedication to our communities’ wellbeing and show nurses that we support them.
While the Nursing Excellence Awards has over 20 award categories, the New Mexico Center for Nursing Excellence would like to highlight the “Touch a Life” category, which is a special category for patients, families, and anyone in the community who has been impacted by a nurse’s work. This special category has no nomination fee and is open to community members. The current public health crisis has shown us that the work of nurses is more important than ever and we hope that the community will show their support for this work by nominating a nurse for a “Touch a Life” award, or for any of our other Nursing Excellence Awards categories.
You can nominate a nurse for a “Touch a Life” award at https://www.nmnursingexcellence.org/nursing-excellence-awards.
