Join us in celebrating the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife in honor of the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth by recognizing and highlighting the contribution of nurses in fighting stroke. WE WANT YOU to nominate nurses (can be individual or group) who have made significant contributions to patients, stroke programs, communities, prehospital emergency services, or public policy making in order to reduce the burden of stroke. You may also self-nominate! 

Nominations should include the following:

  2. A description (limited to no more than 1000 words) of the contribution worthy of this recognition; 
  3. A brief biosketch that describes the individual or group including place of employment, credentials, and other key information. 
  4. Individual nominees must be an ANVC member; if a group or team is the nominee, at least 1 person on the team must be an ANVC member. (Board members and Past Presidents are ineligible for this recognition; volunteer committee members are eligible.)
  5. Send the above information to with Year of the Nurse and Midwife in the subject line.

ANVC will highlight the nominees on the ANVC website from April 1 – July 31 and the ANVC membership will select the first place winner via election in August 2020.
