Nightingale Luminary and STAR Awards 2019-02-22T08:49:41-07:00

Congratulations to our 2019 Nightingale Luminary and STAR nominees!

The Nightingale Luminary and the STAR Award nominees and the Pueblo Community Scholarship recipients for 2019 will be honored at a send off luncheon in Durango in May. Southwestern Colorado Nightingale nominees will go on to attend the Denver Nightingale Luminary Award’s Gala on Saturday, May 11, 2019.

The 2019 Nightingale Gala event has been rescheduled for Spring of 2020. SWCAHEC is looking forward to hosting a celebratory event and working with partners and sponsors to create an evening to remember.

The Annual Nightingale Luminary and STAR Awards provides an opportunity to acknowledge the amazing nurses in our region whose hard work continues to improve health through advocacy, innovation, and leadership.  We believe this recognition of nurses and the nursing profession is a critical component of attracting and retaining the best nurses in southwest Colorado.
