Great 100 President's Letter July 2016

Congratulations Great 100 Nurses 2016

The Great 100 Nurses Board of Directors welcomes The Great 100 Nurses for 2016. This is such an exciting time for the Board of Directors. Each year hundreds of nominations are received from across the state, recognizing nurses who exemplify the qualities of an incredible nurse in the workplace and in the community. This year, over 600 nominations were completed in the database.

At the close of nominations in April, the Selections Committee's work begins. Designated committee members review and blind every nomination. Next, trained teams of past Great 100 recipients receive sets of blinded nominations to read and score each of the narrative sections. The final 100 nurses each identified only by a "Unique Identifier" created from the database are then selected based on their total score.

Those selected as the 2016 Great 100 will be recognized on Saturday October 15th during a formal Black Tie Event at the Koury Convention Center, in Greensboro, along with our 2016 Scholarship Recipients.

It is with great pleasure that I congratulate this year's Great 100 Nurses. The Great 100 Board of Directors and I look forward to meeting you and your family and friends in Greensboro on October 15th.

Wanda Adams
President of the Board
