Honors in Nursing
On May 9, nurses from across the state were honored at the annual Honors in Nursing evening. This event has been held every year since 1994, in coordination with National Nurses Week, in honor of Florence Nightingale's birthday. It is hosted by the University of Utah College of Nursing Alumni Association, to honor nurses throughout the state. Kathleen Kauffman was honored by members of the UNA for her lifelong dedication to patients and her fellow nurses. The Dare to Care award was given to Ann Hutton, PhD, APRN for her contributions to psychiatric and metal health services. Congratulations to all honorees!
