Nurses have had a powerful frontline presence during this unprecedented global pandemic the world, our nation and communities have experienced over the past year. Nurses have not only demonstrated compassion, but have used a high degree of critical thinking skills and sound decision-making while caring for those who were ill, and teaching prevention practices and administering vaccines to so many.  The profession of nursing has been brought to the forefront during the COVID-19 crisis. NURSES drive Healthcare.

       The Panhandle Great 25 Nurses is an opportunity to recognize Registered Nurses from ALL practice areas for their contributions to the communities in which they live and practice both the art and science of nursing. The success of the past 4 annual recognition events has allowed the Great 25 committee to allocate 33,000 dollars in scholarships for nurses to continue to pursue and advance their education in the field of professional nursing and to provide healthcare to the citizens in their respective Panhandle communities. Building on the great success from the past events, this year 8 students will be awarded $2,000.00 scholarship!  As we embark on our 5th annual Panhandle Great 25 Nurses celebration, we invite you to join our efforts to recognize 25 deserving professional nurses throughout the Texas Panhandle.
