Nursing Recognition

Hartford HealthCare recognizes and honors the accomplishments of our dedicated, compassionate, and talented nurses whose commitment to our patients creates a life-changing impact on individuals, families, and the hospital community at large.


Nightingale Awards for Excellence in Nursing

The Nightingale Awards for Excellence in Nursing program was originally developed by the Visiting Nurse Association of South Central Connecticut to be a collaborative effort to celebrate outstanding nurses and elevate the nursing profession. The goals of the program are to encourage retention, inspire future nurses, focus public attention and recognize the breadth and scope of nursing practice at the local level.

Hartford HealthCare is proud to have nurses at several of its hospital awarded with this honor on an annual basis.
