A Message from Andea L. Devoti, MSN, MBA, CHCE
Chairman of the Board, NAHC
Program Seeking 2013 Nominations
Nomination Deadline Extended: April 8, 2013!
The Home Healthcare Nurses Association (HHNA) Nurse Recognition Program is
accepting nominations to honor and recognize home care and hospice nurses from
across the country. Agencies may nominate any registered nurse to represent their
state for 2013. Nominations will be reviewed by the Nurse Recognition Program
selection committee and one nurse will be recognized from each state.
To be eligible, the nominee must be a registered nurse currently employed by
a home care or hospice agency who is a member of the National Association for
Home Care & Hospice (NAHC). Agencies may fill out the online nomination form
on the NAHC or HHNA websites. All entries will also need a high-resolution photo
of both the nurse and a patient and a photo release signed by each person in
the photo. Nominated nurses must provide care to the patient described in the
required nomination application essay and pictured in the entry photo.
To honor the occasion, CARING Magazine will announce the selected
nurses from all 50 states as part of NAHC’s efforts to celebrate National
Nurses Month in May. The May issue will feature these real-life stories of home
care and hospice nurses, along with the patients to whom they give care and support.
Nurses featured in the May issue will automatically be nominated for the NAHC
Home Care and Hospice Nurse of the Year campaign.
Telling these stories is a powerful way of showing what home care and hospice
is and the important impact it has on individuals every day. It’s also
a chance to get your agency the attention it deserves by contributing a story
of your own. Whether you live in New York or Nevada, tell us what your nurses
have done to reduce hospital admissions and keep their patients safe and happy
The deadline for submission is: April 8 , 2013
