The date for the 2016 Cameos of Caring gala has not yet been determined. Please check back for more information.
This is the 14th year that Wright State University's College of Nursing and Health has recognized outstanding bedside Registered Nurses in the Miami Valley for their contributions to health care delivery. When we began the awards gala tradition in 2001, 12 health care agencies participated in this special program; we had our highest participation in 2007 with 19 agencies joining us. We are proud to host an event that spotlights Registered Nurses who have made a difference in our community. We are also proud to announce that since we began our awards gala in 2001, we have raised approximately $345,000 in scholarship funds for Wright State University nursing students.
For the first time, in 2015, a Partners in Caring award will be given at the annual Cameos of Caring event. This award will recognize an individual or individuals in the community that have been champions for nursing, but are non-nurses. The Academic Strategy and Planning Board will be reviewing community nominations for this award and selecting the award winner for 2015.
Please join us to congratulate, celebrate, and recognize these very special individuals who exemplify wisdom, advocacy, and caring in professional nursing.
