Nominate an Extraordinary Nurse
for a 2017 Salute to Nurses Award!

Nurses are the frontline of defense in the healthcare world. Their passion for their work is an inspiration to us all. They are selfless in the service they provide and are tireless in their dedication to their patients. Support an extraordinary nurse today by nominating her/him for a 2017 Salute to Nurses Award.

What makes Salute to Nurses special?

StarMedia will be celebrating 15 years of recognizing nurses that go above and beyond their call of duty. What makes this program truly special is the support that it receives from our community, surrounding business partners and nominators, like yourself.

Program Overview

  • From now until January 31, 2017, we will be accepting nurse nominations across six unique categories: Advancement in Nursing, Extraordinary Caregiver, Community Outreach, Inspiration, Lifetime of Compassion and Nurse Educator. (For award category descriptions, please scroll to the bottom of this page.)
  • Our selection committee will review every nomination and determine a nurse winner for each category.
  • If your nomination is selected as a winning nomination, you will be invited to attend our 2017 Salute to Nurses Awards Ceremony in April, where one nurse winner will be announced as our 2017 Nurse of the Year.
  • To recap this historic event, the IndyStar will also release a special publication on May 7th, 2017 that includes details on our nurse winners, highlights from the awards ceremony and a special congratulations to past winners and 2017 nurse nominees.
