ANA Calls for Nurse Nominations in Modern Healthcare's 7th Annual 100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare Recognition Program

Nominate a nurse leader for inclusion in Modern Healthcare's 7th Annual "100 Most Powerful People" in Healthcare recognition program. Submit your nomination now by visiting 100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare web site

How does it work? Every year, associations go to their members and ask them to nominate their President, Chief Executive Officer or Executive Director. Modern Healthcare will place the 300 people who receive the most nominations on a final ballot and post it on their web site, 100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare. Then, readers will visit the site again to vote for the 10 candidates they believe should make the final list of the "100 Most Powerful."

The 100 people who receive the most votes make the final list with the ranking determined by number of votes received. The magazine reserves the right to resolve voting irregularities. Nominations for inclusion on the ballot will be accepted Monday, April 7 through Friday, May 9. Voting to determine the “100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare” will take place Monday, May 26 through Friday June 27. The final ranking will be published in the Aug. 25, 2008, issue of Modern Healthcare.

In previous years, nurse leaders Mary Foley, MS, RN, ANA President 2000-2002; Barbara Blakeney, MS, RN, ANA President 2002-2006; Linda J.

Fagin, Leadership Professor in Nursing, Professor of Sociology, and Director of the Center for Health Outcomes and Policy Research, Cheryl Johnson, BSN, RN, the late UAN President, have appeared on the list.

Nurses deserve to be recognized - along with nationally known politicians, political appointees and others with influence whose names regularly appear in the roster - as the powerful people we are. In 2008, let's get nurse leaders on the list. You can help make this happen by participating now.
