There is one week left to nominate the most amazing nurse you know for national recognition.
From in-home professional caregivers to emergency room specialists and military medical service personnel, nurses make an impact every day. In celebration of their dedication, the folks at Johnson & Johnson want to highlight Amazing Nurses who make a difference in your life and the lives of those around you. Nurses take care of and heal so many—now let a nurse you know, know how much you care.
One Amazing Nurse will be chosen to attend the 2012 CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute show in Los Angeles, courtesy of CNN. He or she will also be honored in a video profile to be screened before the live audience at the 2012 CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute show and featured on the Nursing Notes by Johnson & Johnson Facebook page.
Your nominee must be an RN, LPN, or an Advanced Practice Nurse, currently employed in that capacity and who currently administers direct patient care. He or she must be 21 or older at the time of nomination. The nomination Period ends at 11:59 A.M. ET on June 29, 2012 (next Friday).
So make the best nurse you know, the best nurse everybody knows. All it takes is a few minutes and a few words and you could be publicly honoring the nurse you know makes a difference.
