Voting for the best finalist is now open!

The American Nurses Association (ANA) is very excited about its video contest around the theme “I am a Nurse, I am a Leader.” As our nation undertakes transformative health care reform, nurses have unprecedented opportunities to optimize their practice, drive change and shape the health care system of the future.

Put more simply, it’s about leadership. Many nurses have insights and examples of leadership to share that will inform and inspire others. We want to hear from nurses about what leadership means to them and how they are living it. It’s a great opportunity to showcase the work that nurses do – for example -- how you work to improve health literacy in your community, mentor a fellow nurse, implement a best practice in the workplace, or advocate for a healthy environment.

The importance of leadership is something ANA and its members have understood and demonstrated for years! We challenged you to share what “I am a Nurse, I am a Leader” means via a 2 minute video.

The response was tremendous. 59 videos were received from nurses and nursing students. An ANA panel has chosen six finalists and now ask the nursing community to vote on their favorite from May 10-16 to select our winner.

The five finalists will each receive $250 and the winner will win $1000! All entrants will receive a “I am a Nurse, I am a Leader” t-shirt.
