Watch our On the Pulse blog, in its new location on the Johns Hopkins Nursing website, for winners of this year’s Shining Star Awards. The awards will be officially presented at An Evening with the Stars on September 24. Winners will be announced in mid-August, part of a format change for An Evening with the Stars, which also features a new venue this year, the Center Club in Baltimore.
Nurses were nominated in one of three categories:
SHINING STAR AWARD—honoring outstanding nurses in the Hopkins community including nurse preceptors, faculty, and student nurses at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing.
CYNTHIA AND PETER ROSENWALD STAR NURSE OF THE YEAR AWARD—honoring a nurse working in an intensive care unit of the Johns Hopkins Hospital who goes above and beyond the call in providing caring, compassionate, and competent nursing to patients. Awardee receives $5,000.
CYNTHIA AND PETER ROSENWALD NURSING INNOVATION AWARD—honoring a nurse for developing implementable and innovative initiatives that improve the quality of patient care across all the Johns Hopkins Hospitals. Awardee receives $5,000.
Now in its fifth year, An Evening with the Stars celebrates the excellence, diversity, integrity, innovation, and dedication that embodies the Hopkins Nurse. Net proceeds from this year’s event will go toward the Mobley Fund, which supports faculty and students whose research is intended to keep families and communities safe from intimate partner violence.
