Nurse Recognition Program Seeking 2013 Nominations

With more than half a dozen senators praising the work and care of home care and hospice nurses, and with NAHC President Val J. Halamandaris reminding people that it is, “the work that you do every day” that is the reason why home care has such broad, bipartisan support on Capitol Hill, now is the time to nominate an outstanding nurse from your state for the Home Healthcare Nurses Association (HHNA) Nurse Recognition Program.

HHNA is currently 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.
