drawingThe Nevada Hospital Association invites you to participate in our 16th Annual Statewide Nursing Essay Contest. This year’s theme, Passion for the Profession, encompasses the unique contributions nurses make in the care of patients and their loved ones. From this main theme, you can submit essays in one of the three categories by answering the following questions:

Professional Development Category
My professional development in nursing had a positive impact on patient care and outcomes because…

Attraction Category
I became (am becoming) a nurse because…

Commitment/Retention Category
I remain in nursing because…

All contest essays should be between 500 and 800 words and must be centered on the main theme, and category. Essays must be submitted electronically as a Microsoft Word document by Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at 5:00 PM. No paper submissions will be accepted. The winning essay will be printed in the NHA newsletter, Hospital News, and you will be recognized and invited to the Nevada Hospital Association’s Award Luncheon at their annual meeting in September.

One of the most exciting parts of the essay contest is surprising each winner at his or her place of employment with the announcement of their achievement and awarding you for your great work!
