The Decade Award recognizes outstanding efforts and effective, value-driven outcomes achieved early in a graduate’s nursing career. To be considered for this award, nominees must have received a degree from Yale School of Nursing within the last ten years and still be engaged in pursuits that advance or align with the school’s mission of better health for all people. Nominees should show distinction in the areas of scholarship, leadership, teaching, research, nursing practice, and/or volunteer efforts, over and above what might be expected early in one’s career, which may include demonstrating innovative and/or unprecedented approaches. This award recognizes a promising future in nursing excellence.
