Continuing the Tradition of Recognizing Excellence in Nursing Professional Engagement & Citizenship
The 2014 Nightingale Awards Program provides for state-level recognition of more than 40 nurses and six traditional Nightingale award designees.
As part of the program, regional award recipients are designated as Luminaries, and up to 48 Luminaries as selected from their regions will be honored at the state recognition event on Saturday, May 10, 2014, at the Renaissance Denver Hotel, 3801 Quebec St., Denver, CO 80207.
Continuing the Tradition of Recognizing Excellence in Nursing Professional Engagement & Citizenship, Dr. Colleen Goode, University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus, will be the evening’s Master of Ceremonies.
The Nightingale Awards event was founded in 1985 to honor nurses who best exemplify the philosophy and practice of Florence Nightingale, a 19th century nursing pioneer who epitomized the art of helping people toward their optimal health. Registered Nurses throughout the state are nominated by solicitation from the Colorado Area Health Education Centers system (AHEC), the Colorado Springs Nightingale and Nightingale Western Colorado in the fall of each year. Each region hosts a local event for nominees. Finalists (Luminaries) are selected by the regions and the State Selection Committee then determines the recipients of the Nightingale Award. The announcement of the recipients at the Nightingale Luminary Awards event is a highlight of the evening. Recipients receive a commemorative Nightingale bronze sculpture crafted by Colorado artist Jan Searle-Kubby.
