Thirteen Honorary Awards to be Bestowed at ANA’s 2008 House of Delegates
Since the early 1900s, the American Nurses Association (ANA) has presented awards to prominent nurses in recognition of their outstanding contributions to the nursing profession and to the field of health care. On Thursday, June 26, 2008, as part of its 2008 Biennial House of Delegates meeting in Washington, DC, ANA bestowed Honorary Awards in 13 categories.
“These nurses truly epitomize the best of the nursing profession. Their commitment to advancing the profession, through education, through research, and through advocacy for their colleagues and their patients serves as an inspiration to nurses everywhere,” said ANA President Rebecca M. Patton, MSN, RN, CNOR.
