Exceptional Nurses Nomination

Black Hills Parent’s Salute to Nurses will celebrate exceptional nursing professionals across the Black Hills in the upcoming Summer 2019 issue.

Has a nurse made an impact on you or a loved one’s life?
Who has inspired you with their comfort, care and skills?

If a nurse has touched your life, or deserves recognition for their dedication to improving our community, please submit a nomination as a thank you for their care.

We are looking for those who go above and beyond the call of duty—whether it be a nurse from a hospital, private practice, or school; a nurse who specializes in women’s health, hospice, pediatrics, research, education, etc.

Nominations END on April 19, 2019
