March of Dimes is honored to pay tribute to the nursing profession and recognize extraordinary nurses throughout our community. The remarkable efforts of these individuals often go unsung and through Nurse of the Year, we are able to honor those who make a difference in the lives of so many.
To nominate a nurse, please click the link above. After the nomination is submitted, your nominee will receive a congratulatory email where they can accept your nomination and take the next steps by filling out a formal application. The nominee must complete the application form to be reviewed for finalist consideration. A Selection Committee, comprised of healthcare professionals from around the state, will carefully review all applications, which will be blinded for anonymity. Finalists will be announced LIVE at our NOMINEE NIGHT on Tuesday, August 17th at Chateau Luxe. All nominees are invited to attend to help us celebrate our Arizona nurses and the work they put into keeping moms, babies, families, and communities healthy.
For more information please contact Lori Katzaroff at LKatzaroff@marchofdimes.org.
