    New Jersey Nurses Honored at 2013 March of Dimes Nurse of the Year Awards

    , , December 19, 2013 —

    The New Jersey March of Dimes has honored 17 outstanding local nurses at the 2013 Nurse of the Year Awards.

    Through Nurse of the Year Awards, the March of Dimes recognizes nurses who demonstrate exceptional patient care, compassion, and service.  Whether serving as a health care provider, educator, researcher, or chapter volunteer/advisor, these nurses have played a critical role in improving the health of New Jersey’s mothers and babies. Nurse of the Year Awards celebrate the nursing profession and creates awareness of the recent strides made in this growing field.

    “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.

    Anne McCartney, RN, MSN, CNM, NEA-BC, Vice President of Patient Care Services Inspira Health Network was the 2013 Nurse of the Year Chair. Donna Cardillo, a registered nurse with more than 30 years of diverse healthcare experience, also spoke at the event.

    “Through Nurse of the Year, March of Dimes has provided a platform in which we can recognize extraordinary nurses - men and women - who have played a vital role in our healthcare system.  There are not enough opportunities to honor nurses and we are privileged to do so tonight,” said McCartney.

    The Nurse of the Year Awards was sponsored by Investors Bank.

    Nurse of the Year Awards are given annually in approximately 17 award categories.  More than 5,000 nurses were nominated nationwide, including 240 in our area. New Jersey award recipients were announced at a special awards gala held on December 12, 2013 at Pines Manor in Edison, which had a record attendance of almost 400 people.  At the event there were over 120 finalists which represented 40 hospitals and healthcare facilities.
