Nursing Excellence Awards

The Grace Evelyn Simpson Reeves awards recognize SickKids nurses for demonstrated excellence in nursing practice, education, leadership, research or innovation.  Winners will receive $1,000 towards a professional development opportunity of their choice. 

The Maria Györössy-Csepreghy Kluge award recognizes SickKids nurses for excellence in Infant and Neonatal nursing. This award is open to any nurse who has worked at SickKids for five or more years and is enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate or continuing education program. Winners will receive $3,000 to be used towards tuition fees.

An individual nurse or a team (including interprofessional members) may be nominated for an award. Nominations can be submitted by any member of the SickKids staff, a patient/family, or a student who has worked closely with the candidate. Nurses are not eligible for an award if they have received an award in the same category within the last three years.

The award recipients will be acknowledged at the 2019 Nursing Excellence Awards ceremony to be held on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 at 2 p.m. in the Hollywood Theatre.

Nomination instructions and forms can be found here.
