How to nominate a nurse

  1. Meet with the nominee to discuss the categories and areas of recognition
  2. Determine which category of practice best identifies the nominee:
    • Category I: Nurses in Clinical Practice (50% or their time or above providing direct patient care)
    • Category II: Administrators, Educators, Researchers, Non-Traditional Practice Roles (any other RN)
  3. Determine area of recognition for the nominee and answer 6 to 7 questions regarding your nominee’s category/area of recognition. (Click here to review the questions):
    • Advocacy – advancing a cause or proposal
    • Leadership – motivating others to work toward a common goal
    • Innovation – demonstrating creativity that addresses today’s challenges/opportunities
  4. Identify two individuals to request a letter of support from (other than the nominator). These letters of support should address how the nominee has advanced the profession of nursing or has positively impacted his/her community. Be sure to share with the letter writers the category and area of recognition for your nominee
  5. Be sure to nominate your nurse in the correct region! Region corresponds to the county in which the nurse works. If a nurse works in a facility, use the county in which the facility is located. If the nurse travels, use the county of the branch or office to which the nurse reports.

SPECIAL NOTE - Video required by nominator if your nominee works in one of the following counties: Kit Carson, Larimer, Lincoln, Logan, Morgan, Phillips, Sedgwick, Washington, Weld or Yuma.
For nominees in these counties, the nominator is required to submit a 30 to 60 second video explanation of why they nominated the nurse they did. This can be done by one person or any number of people. Creative videos are always a plus! To submit the video, you must add the file to the following dropbox link: https://www.dropbox.com/request/16WIhtHXH7UlrkkfVstu. Submitters will not require a dropbox account to submit a video to the link.
