Nursing Excellence Award Winners

For many years, MacNeal Hospital gave a Nursing Excellence Award during Nurses' Week. In 2009 this evolved into seven separate awards in seven categories. This evolution occurred because of the explosion of activity in nursing that extends into multiple areas that deserve our recognition. These nurses are nominated and selected by their peers and coordinated by the Recruitment, Retention and Recognition Council.

The 2011 winners in each category were:

  • Innovation and Creativity: Cheryl Jastrzebski, RN, BSN, CNRN, CMSRN
  • Preceptor and Mentoring: Janet Resa, RN, BSN
