The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh College of Nursing (CON) and Board of Visitors will recognize outstanding nurses and celebrate nursing excellence at the Nightingale Awards Dinner, which will be held April 14 at the Alumni Welcome and Conference Center.
Nominations are now being accepted through Jan. 18 for the Nightingale Award for Excellence in Nursing Practice. Staff-level registered nurses (RNs) or license practical nurses (LPNs) actively employed in Wisconsin who demonstrate clinical excellence and spend the majority of their time in patient care are eligible. Nominations can be submitted by coworkers, supervisors, patients or the general public. Self-nominations will also be accepted. Although nominees do not need to be UW Oshkosh graduates to be nominated, some of the CON’s 5,000-plus alumni might like to nominate a coworker or a nurse who cared for them.
The award entails $1,000 and a commemorative award.
The purpose of the awards dinner in April is to honor registered nurses and licensed practical nurses involved in direct patient care who exemplify the highest standards of nursing practice.
Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to contribute calendar items, campus announcements and other news to UW Oshkosh Today.
