Overview: Honors for Nursing

Recognizing Utah’s Nurses for Over 20 Years

Honors for Nursing is the only event of its kind that brings nurses together from around the state of Utah to celebrate one another's accomplishments. It is an annual event held each spring during National Nurses Week in conjunction with Florence Nightingale's birthday and is hosted by the University of Utah College of Nursing Alumni Association.

Honors for Nursing began in 1994 as a small gathering of honorees in the College of Nursing lobby. Thanks to the generous support of past sponsors such as University of Utah Health Care, Intermountain Healthcare, IASIS, MountainStar Healthcare, Zions Bank, Energy Solutions, and many others the event has grown every year. Now several hundred nurses are honored each year. 

The event raises scholarship funds for students at the University of Utah's College of Nursing. In this way, Honors for Nursing uniquely supports present and future nurses in Utah.
