About the Program

Has a nurse made an impact on you or a loved one's life?

StarMedia has been the proud host of Salute to Nurses since 2003. Salute to Nurses celebrates nursing professionals across Indiana who are truly an inspiration to all. With staffing shortages and increasing demands, our honorees have found ways to go above and beyond in providing care and comfort to patients and their families.

The Salute to Nurses program has honored dozens of nurses and nurse educations for their selfless service and the tireless care they provide to their patients across the years. This year’s event will be held on April 27th, 2016 at The Crane Bay.

From neonatal units to senior care facilities, nurses play a vital role in the health of our community. Our honorees are chosen from submissions from patients and peers. If a nurse has touched your life, or deserves recognition for their dedication to improving our community, please submit a nomination as a thank you for their care.
