Recognizing the need to shine a spotlight on a profession founded over 150 years ago by nurse Florence Nightingale, the Northern Nevada Nurses of Achievement Committee was formed in 1999. The goal of this committee of dedicated nurses was to honor their colleagues and to increase awareness of nursing as a profession.
The mission of the Northern Nevada Nurses of Achievement Committee is to continue to honor nursing and the profession of nursing by recognizing outstanding individuals within, and to encourage the ongoing growth of nursing by supporting future nurses via scholarships and recognition of their efforts.
In comparison to the magnitude of today's Northern Nevada Nurses of Achievement celebration, the first Northern Nevada Nurses of Achievement ceremony was quite small, with approximately 100 attendees celebrating three nurse honorees. Since its inception the Northern Nevada Nurses of Achievement celebration has grown tremendously. It has become a coveted award of nursing excellence in Northern Nevada. Since the first ceremony in 1999, Northern Nevada Nurses of Achievement has honored hundreds of nurses, promoting nurses and their contribution to healthcare.

In promoting the profession of nursing, the Northern Nevada Nurses of Achievement Committee has raised money to support nursing scholarships across Northern Nevada. The Northern Nevada Nurses of Achievement Committee has, in fact, awarded over $180,000 in nursing scholarships. Refer to our scholarships page for more information.
