ABOUT THE EVENT
The Minnesota Nurse of the Year Awards-Presented by M HEALTH FAIRVIEW- provides the Minnesota community with a way to recognize local nurses who – especially during the COVID-19 pandemic – are on the front lines of caring for families. Whether serving as health care provider, educator, researcher, volunteer or advisor, nurses play a critical role in advancing the March of Dimes mission to fight for the health of every mom and baby.
There are 18 diverse categories (listed below), with 85 total finalists. Awards were presented during a special virtual ceremony on October 23rd, 2020 at 6:30PM. A replay of the event is open to ALL who wish to view (IT IS FREE) and support Minnesota nurses. Simply click the link above.
