Nurse award nominations have opened for the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing’s An Evening with the Stars event. Nurses can be nominated in one of three categories:
Shining Star Award—honoring outstanding nurses in the Hopkins community including nurse preceptors, faculty, and student nurses at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing.
Cynthia and Peter Rosenwald Star Nurse of the Year Award—honoring a nurse working in an Intensive Care Unit of the Johns Hopkins Hospital who goes above and beyond the call in providing caring, compassionate, and competent nursing to patients. Awardee receives $5,000.
Cynthia and Peter Rosenwald Nursing Innovation Award—honoring a nurse for developing implementable and innovative initiatives that improve the quality of patient care across all the Johns Hopkins Hospitals. Awardee receives $5,000.
Nominations are due by July 15. Winners will be announced on August 12 and recognized at the ceremony on September 24.
Now in its fifth year, An Evening with the Stars celebrates the excellence, diversity, integrity, innovation, and dedication that embodies the Hopkins nurse. This year’s event will be held at The Center Club in Baltimore, and net proceeds will go toward the Mobley Fund, which supports faculty and students whose research is intended to keep families and communities safe from intimate partner violence.
To celebrate all nurses and the profession as a whole, guests are invited to recognize their favorite nurse, faculty member, or nursing student, whether in Hopkins or not, by purchasing a star to be displayed at the event and featured in the program. Stars purchased by August 15 will be featured in the program, and all submissions are due by September 15.
Registration for the event is also now open.
