All-Pro Nursing Award

Honor your nursing team by telling us what makes your team All-Pro.

Tell us in a 150-300-word essay or in a 1-2 minute video how your nursing team stands apart, by focusing on these key criteria:

  • How does your team measure the impact on outcomes?
  • What outcomes do your team hope to achieve in your practice of care?
  • What makes your team’s dynamic special?
  • What type of culture does your team cultivate and how does this culture add to your level of care?
  • What skills do you look for when recruiting new team members?
  • What skills do your team aim to foster, and what are the education tactics team leaders use to achieve these goals?

Our panel of judges (including Editor-in-Chief Lillee S. Gelinas) is looking for visual storytelling, so get creative and show us what makes your team All-Pro.

We’ll notify winners by March 2 and make contact for follow-up interviews. The winners will be publicly announced in the April 2020 issue of American Nurse Journal.
