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

The Great 100 Nurses Foundation was founded by PK Scheerle, RN in New Orleans, Louisiana 33 years ago. Since its founding, the Great 100 Celebrations have honored thousands of Nurses across Louisiana, North Carolina, Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. These exemplary Nurses are selected based on their concern for humanity, their contributions to the profession of Nursing, and their mentoring of others. It is a great honor in the life of the Nurse to be selected as a Great 100 Honoree and our Foundation helps each RN recognize themselves as Nurse Heroes.

We are very proud of our program. Each year, community, health care, government leaders, family, friends and peers join together to honor these Great 100 Nurses.

The funds we raise through our Celebration are used not only to honor the nurses you will meet at our annual Celebrations, but to also support nursing advocacy, nursing scholarships, and nursing research for the betterment 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!
