The American Association for Men in Nursing is saluting one individual or organization that is raising the bar for inclusion and diversity in the nursing profession.
The inaugural IDEA Award — the Inclusion and Diversity Excellence Award — will be presented at AAMN’s annual conference, Oct. 31 - Nov. 2 in Orlando.
Individuals and health care organizations that employ nurses (including nursing education programs) and promote diversity, inclusion and a welcoming environment are eligible. One individual or organizational award will be given this year.
Individuals can be nominated by others but cannot self-nominate. Nominees will be evaluated by the AAMN Recognition Review Committee in a blinded manner.
Nomination letters are limited to three single-spaced pages in length with one-inch margins and 12-point font. Up to six attachments are permitted to provide evidence of accomplishments.
Please submit your nominations to Scott Kelnhofer, AAMN association manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submissions is Aug. 1, 2019.
