The Annual LTCNA Nursing Awards Program recognizes outstanding CNAs, MDS Coordinators, Nurses and DONs who have proven to be dedicated, hardworking and compassionate while caring for facility residents in an ever-changing long term care environment.
Each member center office that submits a nomination(s) must designate ONE contact for all of their nominations.
All nominees will receive a certificate recognizing their achievement.
Facilities are welcomed (and encouraged!!) to nominate multiple staff members.
The LTCNA Nursing Awards will be presented, as in years past, at Ovations: A Celebration of Long Term Care Nurses during IHCA’s Annual Convention & Expo in Springfield.
A list of nominees, as well as information about the chosen winners, will be featured in IHCA publications, on our websites and/or social media pages.
Press releases will be sent to local media outlets announcing the winners.
The criteria for the following nominations are based on excellence and outstanding service in long term care.
