                                                              New Mexico Nursing Excellence Awards

 Since 2005, the New Mexico Center for Nursing Excellence has had the honor of hosting the New Mexico Nursing Excellence Awards. 

This annual gala recognizes excellence in nursing practice and honors nurses for the contributions they make to their organizations, communities and to our state. 

  Created by nurses for nurses, the Nursing Excellence Awards have honored over 2,500
New Mexico nurse nominees since we began. 

  Proceeds from the Nursing Excellence Awards supports the New Mexico Center for Nursing Excellence and its mission.



There are 3 types of awards:
  • Nursing Excellence Awards recognize excellence in practice and leadership in 20 specialty categories plus the Distinguished Nurse of the Year Award.

  • The Nursing Legend Award recognizes retired nurses who have made significant contributions to  the nursing profession. 

  • The "Touch a Life" Award celebrates the special bond between patient and nurse. This award was created to give patients, families, and communities an opportunity to recognize a nurse that has touched their lives in a meaningful way.
