100 Great Iowa Nurses is a nonprofit program that honors great nurses in Iowa, and funds financial awards to support
the education of Iowa nurses. Established in 2004, the program recognizes qualities that demonstrate efforts beyond those expected of a nurse within his/her normal duties, such as concern for humanity, significant contribution to the profession, and mentoring. For more information, visit greatnurses.org.
