2015 Nurses of Distinction

A Tribute to Nurses of Distinction

Each year Alpha Phi Chapter proudly presents outstanding registered nurses. These nurses have distinguished themselves through their achievements and contributions to the nursing profession and to the health of the community.

Honorees include staff nurses, administrators, educators, public health, critical care, emergency, reproductive health, medical/surgical, pediatric, school nursing, etc.
