Each year during our Annual Nursing Banquet, nurses who have been nominated in each of the various categories are recognized and the winners are presented with their awards. Many of these awards are made possible through generous donations from members of the community in memory of loved ones.

- Recognition awards for outstanding nursing practice to encourage and maintain high standards of professionalism.
- Continuing education programs and conference opportunities for our nursing professionals.
- Scholarships for nurses to support their nursing education.
