For the second consecutive year, OU Medicine has been recognized for quality in nursing.
The Great 100 Nurses Foundation released its annual list of exceptional nursing professionals across the state in early August, according to a press release, and OU Medicine employees hold 36 of those spots in the 2019 list. OU Medicine was also recognized last year with 32 employees honored by the foundation.
The foundation, which was founded over 30 years ago, has recognized thousands of nurses for demonstration of concern for humanity, contributions to the profession, and abilities shown in leadership and mentorship, according to the release.
“OU Medicine promotes a culture where nursing professionals can excel. It is this culture of excellence that ensures high-quality patient care and improves outcomes,” said Cathy Pierce, chief nurse executive for OU Medicine, in the release. “OU Medicine is justifiably proud of its nursing professionals, but it is especially thrilling to congratulate those recognized by the Great 100 Foundation.”
The recognized nurses include OU Medicine employees who work at OU Medical Center, OU Medical Center Edmond, The Children’s Hospital and the OU College of Medicine Department of Neurology. All honorees will be celebrated at the annual Great 100 Oklahoma Nurses event, which will be held in Tulsa on Sept. 23, according to the press release.
