The 2018 Advocate Nurse Award
More than 400 nurses from across Advocate Health Care were nominated for our second annual The Advocate Nurse Award. Nominations were submitted by physicians and associates, including many non-nursing associates, to recognize Advocate nurses who empower, serve and thrive. These nominations were vetted and presented in blinded format to site-based review committees who scored each according to a metric that took into account each nominee’s passion for patient care, commitment to service, problem-solving abilities and leadership aptitude.
The winners, approved by each site/business unit’s chief nurse executive, are nurses from a variety of specialties across the patient care continuum. They represent diversity in their backgrounds and experiences; some are veteran nurses with more than 30 years of experience while others are relatively new to Advocate or to the nursing profession yet have already made an impact on their patients and colleagues.
