    March of Dimes Nurse of the Year Awards Excellence in Nursing

    Wendy Keyes, March of Dimes, (973) 296-8811, wkeyes@marchofdimes.org

    Sayreville, New Jersey, February 26, 2013 —

    The March of Dimes New Jersey chapter is pleased to announce the winners of the annual March of Dimes Nurse of the Year Awards. A presentation ceremony was held at The Eatontown Sheraton Hotel on January 31, 2013.

    Nurses are an integral part of the March of Dimes mission for stronger, healthier babies. The Nurse of the Year Awards is a state-wide event that recognizes exceptional nurses, creates awareness of professional excellence and promotes the future of the nursing profession, while helping to advance the mission of the March of Dimes.

    “We could not do the work of the March of Dimes without the passion and commitment of our nurses.  This is our opportunity to show them how special they truly are,” said Addy Bonet, State Director of the New Jersey Chapter of the March of Dimes.

    The Nurse of the Year selection committee reviews hundreds of applications across 15 categories ranging from Adult Critical Care to Neonatal.  More than 100 finalists emerged, all representing the March of Dimes vision for a healthier, stronger generation of babies and families.

    “Nurses play a vital role in our society. They are truly the unsung heroes of the health care provider community, and we are proud to honor the work they do,” said Pat Steingall, Honorary Chair, Vice President of Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer at Hunterdon Medical Center.

    The Nurse of the Year Award is presented by Actavis, Investors Bank, Hunterdon Healthcare, and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital- New Brunswick.

    The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide, the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
