The New Mexico Nursing Excellence Awards recognize excellence in nursing practice and honor nurses for the contributions they make to their organizations, communities and the state. There are three types of awards:
• Nursing Excellence Awards recognize excellence in practice and leadership in 20 specialty categories plus the Distinguished Nurse of the Year Award.
• The Nursing Legend Award recognizes retired nurses who have made significant contributions to the nursing profession.
• The “Touch a Life” Award celebrates the special bond between patient and nurse. This award was created to give patients, families and communities an opportunity to recognize a nurse that has touched their lives in a meaningful way.
