Award Criteria

The Nurse Excellence Awards were initiated by the nurse executives of RWHC’s member facilities to recognize the high quality of nursing practice provided by hospitals serving rural communities. Nurses in community hospital settings must be highly educated and well rounded in terms of clinical practice, in addition to having the ability to respond to a variety of age groups, diagnoses, and patient emergencies. The establishment of this award recognizes that excellence in nursing practice is a valuable asset to rural communities in the state of Wisconsin.
