Each and every day nurses care for patients and communities, making a positive difference in the lives of many. These compassionate and competent nurses are a credit to the field of health care and their efforts deserve recognition. ANA is committed to honoring nurses whose dedication and achievements have contributed to the nursing profession. 

A primary goal of ANA's National Awards Program is to inform members of the nursing profession, other health professionals, government officials, and the public of the outstanding accomplishments and significant achievements of individual registered nurses in the delivery of health care. In addition, ANA's National Awards Program assists the public in gaining a better understanding of the role of nursing and its significant contribution to the delivery of health care.
