2013 Alumni Award Nominations Now Open

The School of Nursing is accepting nominations for awards to be presented each year during Alumni Day. Please nominate that colleague or friend who has meant much to the profession and to the School of Nursing. A member of the awards committee may contact you for additional information.

The DISTINGUISHED ALUMNA/US OF THE YEAR AWARD is awarded to the UNC School of Nursing graduate who is known for distinction in nursing through scholarly endeavors, promotion of health care or professional service.

The CARRINGTON AWARD FOR EXCEPTIONAL COMMUNITY SERVICE is awarded to the UNC School of Nursing graduate who has given remarkable service to the community, state or other beneficiary organizations and has reflected favorably on the School of Nursing through efforts to benefit society (though not necessarily through direct nursing activity).

The HONORARY ALUMNA/US AWARD is awarded to a professional who possesses distinction in the nursing profession and has demonstrated outstanding support to the School of Nursing. This person is a non-graduate of the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Nursing.

The GRADUATE OF THE LAST DECADE AWARD (GOLD) is awarded to the School of Nursing graduate who has graduated within the past ten years and has made outstanding contributions to the School, profession, community or nation.

Recipients will be recognized at a special award ceremony to be held on campus on November 7, 2013. Please help us identify and acknowledge these exceptional nurses within our alumni community.

Many thanks to you for your feedback and participation. We are sincerely grateful for all the ways you support Carolina nursing.
