Friend of Nursing Award

We honor those who actively support, promote and collaborate with our nursing staff. The Friend of Nursing Award recipients personify St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s mission to provide intercollaborative care between different disciplinary teams and Nursing.

These individuals demonstrate excellence through their ability to collaborate with nurses and provide compassionate care. They are recognized as outstanding role models in our nursing community.

Nominees can be individuals who are employed by St. Jude, from a respiratory therapist to an Environmental Services employee to a physician. We strive to recognize those who work tirelessly with our nurses to provide the best care for our patients.
