Thank you for nominating an extraordinary nurse for the Panhandle Great 25 Nurses Program.  THE DEADLINE FOR COMPLETED NOMINATIONS IS JULY 30 BY 5:00 P.M.  Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.

Important information before beginning the Nomination Form:

1. Registered Nurses (RNs) with at least five years of practice in the Texas Panhandle are eligible for nomination.  Healthcare colleagues, peers, supervisors, family and friends may nominate a Registered Nurse from any field in the nursing profession.

2. The first section of the Nomination application will include demographic information about the Nominee (the RN being Nominated) and the Nominator (you).

3. A complete and well-written nomination must include specific examples and/or story narratives about how the Registered Nurse exemplifies the following criteria:


The selection of honorees is a competitive process. The Nominator should interview their Nominee to ensure that all criteria have been met and worthy of this prestigious recognition. Specific examples and stories should showcase the Nurse's contributions to the Profession of Nursing.

4. It is very important for the application to be written without identifying information in the narrative sections (e.g. place of employment) by referring to the nominee as 'the Nurse'. Nominations will be reviewed by a panel of judges who will not have access to the demographic data.

5. The nominee's curriculum vitae (CV) or resume must be attached and uploaded with the application when submitted. Nominators should contact their nominee to obtain a CV or resume.

6. Only 1 nominee per nominator will be considered. If there are multiple nominees by 1 nominator, the nominees will be removed from consideration.
