ABOUT GREAT 100 NURSES FOUNDATION

It is a great honor in the life of a nurse...

The Great 100 Nurses Foundation was founded in New Orleans, Louisiana twenty-eight years ago and since then has honored thousands of nurses across Louisiana, North Carolina, Texas, and now Oklahoma. These exemplary nurses are selected based on their concern for humanity, their contributions to the profession and their mentoring of others. It is a great honor in the life of the nurse. Our Foundation helps each RN walk taller and recognize themselves as nurse heroes.

We are very proud of our program and anticipate sharing our enthusiasm with you. Every year state-wide community, civic, health care and government leaders, family, friends and peers join together at the celebration to honor these Great 100 Nurses. This event features live music, local gourmet food, and the company of the finest nurses.

The funds we raise through our Celebration are used not only to honor the nurses you will meet at our annual Celebration, but they also support nursing advocacy, nursing scholarships, research for the bettering of lives, publication of nursing discoveries and the implementation of those discoveries. The Great 100 Nurses Celebration belongs to everyone who has met and been touched by an exceptional nurse!
