Role Award Nomination Tips
Several applications are submitted each year for ARN Role Awards and a well-written nomination will help your nominee stand out. Below are a few tips to help you draft an outstanding application.
- Use the application for the current year. Even if you have nominated the individual in prior years, do not resubmit an old application.
- Provide concrete, specific examples of the actions and activities that make this nurse an exceptional rehabilitation nurse. What programs or initiatives has this individual started or helped evolve? What educational activities has he or she developed and shared with other staff? What steps has the nominee taken to improve patient care?
- Review the application. Typos and other errors will detract from your nominee.
