A formal awards ceremony will be held at the VERVE - Crowne Plaza Hotel in Natick on December 3, 2012 at 6 p.m. The event honors excellence in nursing throughout Massachusetts.

“Nurses play a vital role in our society. They are truly the unsung heroes of the health care provider community, and we are proud to honor the work they do,” said Christine Burke, health care consultant and long-time supporter of the March of Dimes.

Nurses are an integral part of the March of Dimes mission for stronger, healthier babies. The Nurse of the Year Awards is a state-wide event that recognizes exceptional nurses, creates awareness of professional excellence and promotes the future of the nursing profession, while helping to advance the mission of the March of Dimes.

The Nurse of the Year selection committee reviewed applications across seven categories ranging from Neonatal to Advanced Practice. More than 20 finalists emerged, all representing the March of Dimes vision for a healthier, stronger generation of babies and families.

The Nurse of the Year Awards presenting Sponsor is Randstad Healthcare. Additional sponsors include Hologic, Medimmune, the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), and Abbott Nutrition.
