The annual State of Nursing celebration focused on the individual and diverse roles of Sparrow Nurses. This year's theme was, "Sparrow, where every Nurse is unique."
The hall was decorated with snowflakes to symbolize the diversity of Sparrow Nurses and how they each play a part in helping to deliver quality, compassionate care at Sparrow.
The event also contains a year in review segment, focuses on goals for the future, and honors individual Nurses for his or her accomplishments. This year's Preceptor of the Year went to Steve Dexter, BSN, RN. Mother/Baby and the Emergency Department were also honored with Nursing Excellence Awards.
