Do you know a nurse in the first seven years of their career who is an innovator and leader in the nursing profession? The Missouri Nurses Foundation is calling for nominations for the Early-Career Nurse Innovator Award.
This award recognizes nurses early in their careers who have made innovative contributions to the field of nursing. The recipients of this award have made significant contributions to the nursing profession and exhibited remarkable qualities as emerging leaders in the field of nursing.
The Missouri Nurses Foundation is committed to recognizing the high-quality work that nurses in the early stages of their careers are demonstrating. What better way to encourage the important evidence-based, patient-centered work that is at the heart of all that nurses do?
The Foundation’s emphasis on the Early-Career Nurse Innovator award is one part of this organization’s philanthropic focus to support nurse-led initiatives to improve and promote the health of Missourians.
Past winners have included:
- Evidence to Support Stimulant Laxatives in Postoperative Cardiothoracic Patients
- Established New Evidence for Practice Change in Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy Patients
- Interventions for Distressed Dementia Patients
- Development of a Regional Mentoring Program
Each one of these awardees has been a professional nurse for less than 7 years—and through this state-wide award process, we have showcased the fine work of these nurses in the early stages of their careers.
