The Story

EVENT DATE: Sep 22, 2017

The 7th Annual Nurse of the Year Awards will take place on Friday, September 22 at the Radisson Riverside Hotel. This prestigious event recognizes outstanding nurses throughout Rochester, champions the profession of nursing, and raises awareness to support the March of Dimes mission.


More than 200 nurses were nominated this year, with 55 moving on to become finalists. Winners will be announced at the Nurse of the Year Gala, tickets for which can be purchased at www.nurseoftheyear.org/rochester.

Donations made in honor of a nurse finalist help us give every baby a fighting chance by preventing prematurity, birth defects, and infant mortality. Preterm birth is the number one killer of babies and children under 5, and affects 1 in 10 babies in Rochester. Your donation helps us fund research and local programs so we can stop this problem.


Please note, finalists are NOT required to fundraise and it will in no way impact the final results of the awards.


Donations over $50 made in honor of a finalist will be acknowledged in event program. Congratulations to our 2017 Nurse of the Year Award Finalists!
