Call for Nominations ANA Massachusetts Awards
Deadline January 5, 2017


ANA Massachusetts Awards honor the remarkable, but often unrecognized work of ANA Massachusetts members. You probably work with or know nurse colleagues whose commitment to nursing and to patient care is exemplary. Yet in the rush of today's world, there is often little time to acknowledge them and their professional contributions.

ANA Massachusetts has established several awards that provide you the opportunity to recognize those nurses who have made a difference at the bedside, in the classroom, and in the practice of nursing.

The award recipients will be invited to the ANA Massachusetts Awards Dinner Ceremony which will take place on Friday, April 7, 2017.
