Group of nurse leaders

Awards, Professional Development Grants, and Scholarships

The AADNS Awards, Professional Development Grants, and Scholarships program was established to recognize and reward nurse leaders and facilities that practice and demonstrate the highest level of care and quality of living for residents. We proudly celebrate these leaders and provide opportunities for professional development and personal advancement. If you're proud of your work or the work of your colleagues, recognize them by nominating them to receive one of these prestigious awards, grants, or scholarships.
