2017 UW Health Nursing Excellence Award Winners

Each year, Nurses Week provides a special time for UW Health to recognize all nurses for the care they provide to patients all year long. As part of that recognition, there is a small group of nurses who, according to their peers, exemplify the highest level of commitment, clinical practice and leadership in the delivery of patient- and family-centered care.
