Reviews & Best Lists

The Excellence in Nursing Awards 2016

These health care professionals are tops in their field.

HOW WE DID IT

We contacted local hospitals, private practices, doctors, and patients, and asked them to visit our website to nominate a registered nurse in eight categories. We asked the nominators to answer three questions regarding how the nurses affected their lives, community, and profession. The editors selected the best nominations and sent them to a panel of registered nurses in various fields. The panel included Elaine Harrison, director of marketing and community outreach for the Visiting Nurse Association; Dr. Stephanie Woods, associate professor and associate dean at Texas Woman’s University; and Elizabeth Poster, professor at the University of Texas at Arlington College of Nursing and Health Innovation. The panel could not judge those they work with directly. We compiled the judges’ scores to select the 73 winners. We also vetted the registered nursing licenses and reviewed any disciplinary actions of each winner.
