    Dating back to the polio era, nurses have played a critical role in advancing the mission of the March of Dimes. 40,000 nurses volunteered for the Salk polio vaccine field trials in 1954, the largest medical investigation of its kind ever conducted.

    Today, nurses serve as volunteers, fundraisers and advisors to the March of Dimes. Nurses are critical to its mission of improving the health of babies – and are key in comforting families.

    From the very youngest of patients in newborn intensive care units to the elderly in hospice, nurses protect our health, work to prevent injury, alleviate suffering and advocate for our care. Nurse of the Year Awards are a way to say thank you and honor selflessness, dedication and passion for the profession of nursing.
