UAMS Nurses Number Half of Inaugural 100 Great Nurses of Arkansas List
The Great 100 Nurses Foundation has released its list of the top nurses in Arkansas and half of the caregivers honored are University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) nurses. The 2017 honorees were recognized at an April 11 dinner ceremony at Embassy Suites in Little Rock.
The UAMS nurses recognized encompass numerous backgrounds and specialties in research, administration, and practice. The Great 100 Nurses Foundation was founded more than 30 years ago by P.K. Scheerle and advocates for nursing through support for nursing scholarships and research.
This is the first year the foundation has recognized Arkansas nurses. Honorees were selected based on their concern for humanity, their contributions to the profession and their mentorship of others.
