NSNA constituent associations have many opportunities for involvement in leadership activities and programs. One of the many rewards of active participation in NSNA is the annual awards and honors program offered to individual members, schools, and state chapters.*
Provided here is comprehensive information about the awards and honors and how to apply for them. (Note that certain awards do not require an application). Feel free to photocopy this booklet in part or in whole and to share it with other student leaders and faculty.
Deadlines—applications must be received by 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time on the deadline date listed for each award.
Please follow instructions for award applications carefully. Incomplete online applications will not be considered. Please note that all applications become the property of NSNA. Only one award application per category is permitted for each project. Please do not submit the same project for multiple categories, as it will be disqualified from the awards program.
The top awards in each program will be awarded at the 68th Annual Convention at the Coronado Springs Hotel and Convention Center in Orlando, FL, during the Closing Ceremony on Saturday, April 18, 2020. The General Scholarship and Promise of Nursing Scholarship recipients will be recognized during the Opening Ceremony on Wednesday, April 15, 2020; the Marilyn Bagwell grant will also be presented during this time.
Honorable Mentions, if awarded, will be listed in Convention News, the convention publication that is emailed to all attendees.
The Project InTouch Grand Prize winner will be presented during the Thursday, April 16, 2020 plenary session; the Leader of Leaders award and Essay Contest winners will be presented during the Friday, April 17, 2020 plenary session.
