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.
