AN OPPORTUNITY TO HONOR YOUR COLLEAGUES
ANA Massachusetts Awards honor the remarkable, but often unrecognized work of 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.
You 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 Awards provide you the opportunity to honor their remarkable, but often unrecognized practice.
ANA Massachusetts Awards are not restricted to ANA Massachusetts members. Nominees can be a member of ANA Massachusetts or a non ANA Massachusetts member who is nominated by a member of ANA Massachusetts. These awards can be peer or self nominated.
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 process of nomination is easy:
Living Legends in Massachusetts Nursing Award
This award is to recognize a nurse who has made significant lifetime contributions to the profession of nursing on a state (Massachusetts), national or international level. Two-to-three Living Nursing Legends Awards are presented each year at the ANA Massachusetts Awards Dinner Ceremony. Candidates should be nominated by a colleague. Candidates should be a current member or have been a past member of MNA when it served as the American Nurses Association (ANA) state affiliate.
