MedStar Georgetown University Hospital was the first hospital in the nation's capital to achieve Magnet® Recognition.
Recognizing Our Best
Every May, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital celebrates National Nurses Week with a series of events designed to honor our nursing staff. National Nurses Week activities include meals, massages, gifts and presentations. The culmination of our celebration is the Annual Nursing Awards Luncheon, where we recognize exceptional nurses who have been nominated by their peers for their embodiment of cura personalis (care of the whole person) and focus on our SPIRIT values.
Congratulations to our 2019 Nurses Week Award Winners!
A very special congratulations to our 2019 Magnet Nurse of the Year, Sharon! Sharon, a nurse on the Neuroscience Specialty Unit, was recognized for her professionalism, leadership, and active involvement in collaborative governance. She is a true role model of Magnet excellence.
