IPN Awards

IPN’s vision includes recognizing nursing excellence and leadership. To support that vision, IPN now has two annual awards, a Leadership Award and an Education Award. Both of these awards are presented at the Spring Program, during National Nurses’ Week. Exceptional nursing can be found in all areas of the profession, and IPN’s members can now nominate colleagues for these awards. We will notify members when the nomination process is open for next year.
