Announcing Utah Nurses Association Awards Recipients
Our 100th anniversary….. The Utah Nurses Association formed in January --- 1914….and we met for the first time October 19, 1914…nearly one hundred years before our Centennial Banquet on October 9, 2014. Our banquet was well-attended with most of our award recipients present. We are honored to name the following outstanding nurses and their accomplishments. Please congratulate them when you see them! Or drop an email!!! Thanks to all who nominated candidates for these awards. (To be nominated was, in itself an award from the nurses who know you best.) The award decisions were difficult. We all should recognize the great nurses we work with where ever we are!
