Nominations are now being accepted for the 9th Annual Palm Healthcare Foundation and The Palm Beach Post’s Nursing Distinction Awards.  

The Nursing Distinction Awards were created to honor nurses whose professional contributions have made an impact in Palm Beach County. The foundation seeks nominees who: consistently display dedication to excellence in an area of expertise through commitment to the profession and the promotion of a sense of community and collegiality; demonstrate ways to improve the quality of healthcare; and discover creative ways to assist those in need in a compassionate and caring manner. Special consideration will be given to those who inspire others to pursue a nursing career and make tangible contributions to the health and well-being of the residents of Palm Beach County.
The Nursing Distinction Awards will be presented at The Breakers Palm Beach on May 6, 2011.  The 2011 Nurse of the Year will be awarded with $1,000 and a spa weekend at The Breakers.
