Nursing Excellence Award

The Nursing Excellence Award for Leadership or for Clinical Practice honor individuals who have demonstrated outstanding contributions to nursing in Ohio, Kentucky or Indiana. 


The InterAct for Change Board of Trustees / Scholarship Committee annually appoints a committee to review nominations and to select the honoree(s) for the award. Awards are given for Leadership and for Clinical Practice. Winners will be notified by late-April.


The purpose of the award is to recognize outstanding contributions to nursing in Ohio, Kentucky, or Indiana. Nominees should exemplify contributions in one or more of the following ways:

  • Longstanding leadership in nursing.
  • Exceptional clinical practice or professional care delivery.
  • Creativity in responding to opportunities or challenges.
  • Significant positive impact on nursing issues, care delivery, education or practice



These awards recognize contributions to nursing made by individuals in a variety of practice settings, institutions, and organizations. We are purposefully casting our net broadly. Any registered nurse who is actively involved in a paid or volunteer leadership capacity--for example, as a board member, executive, manager, or other leadership capacity-- is eligible to be nominated. Self nominations are welcome.
