In Search of Excellence
DOES YOUR UNIT, HOSPITAL, OR STATE OR PROVINCIAL nursing organization have an excellence award? What about your professional associations? I know that the Academy of Neonatal Nursing has such an award, so my question to you is: How often have you nominated someone? How often is the winner of an organizational award a neonatal nurse? I would argue that the selection committee for any nursing award should be knee-deep in nominations of neonatal nurses—more about why, later. Sadly, too often, nomination deadlines are instead extended because of a lack of nominees. This begs still another question: Why? Why are nurses reluctant to nominate and be nominated for awards?
