Who will be the First Hispanic Nurse Legacy Awardee?
Washington, DC (February 15, 2016) — The National Associations of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN) is excited to announce the establishment of a new Award, the Hispanic Nurse Legacy Award.
The Hispanic Nurse Legacy Award will recognize NAHN members that have contributed to the nursing profession in an extraordinary way. A Hispanic Nurse Legacy Awardee is committed to the advancement of health in the Hispanic communities through leadership; and to promote and advocate for educational, professional, and leadership opportunities for Hispanic nurses.
Differently from the NAHN of the Year Award which recognizes outstanding service to NAHN and to the nursing and Hispanic community on the year previous, the Hispanic Nurse Legacy Award recognizes outstanding service throughout multiple years.
Although these Hispanic Nurse Legacy Awardees may have stepped down from the positions they served, their legendary contribution continues to have a positive, ongoing impact on the profession and on our Hispanic communities.
One member will be selected each year for this NAHN honor. A nominee for the Hispanic Nurse Legacy Award who is not selected in one year may be nominated again in succeeding years.
Completed nomination form are due April 1, 2016. Application should be sent to the Scholarship and Awards Committee, accompanied by two compelling support letters from members in good standing addressing the criteria for the Hispanic Nurse Legacy Award honor. A CV or resume is required.
