Recognize and Nominate an Outstanding Nurse

MInnesota  Oncology is fortunate to have so many knowledgeable, caring and compassionate nurses in the organization.

It’s time to recognize them for the work they do.

The March of Dimes has been hosting a Nurse of the Year Awards for several years and this year has added an Oncology Nursing recognition category.

The March of Dimes is most known for its work with Polio and now focuses its attention on improving the health of babies and the families.

Compassion for patients, leadership in quality and patient safety and a role model in the health care setting are just a few of the qualities that describe great nurses. Honor your colleagues by nominating them for the March of Dimes Nurse of the Year Awards.

All nominees receive an invitation for them and their friends & family to attend a Nominee Social on August 18th. The purpose of this event is to recognize all of our nominees for their accomplishment. The Nominee Social features food, beverages and live entertainment.

The Top 5 Finalists of each of the 16 award categories will receive a free ticket to the Nurse of the Year Awards Ceremony on October, 14th. The purpose of this event is to recognize each award category, the incredible nurses working within each field and announce the winners.


Say thank you to the thousands of Minnesota nurses who have impacted your life. Nominations are due by July 15th, 2016. Nominations can be made by visiting:
