The APEX Awards for Publication Excellence has honored Nurse.com with a 2014 award in the Regular Departments & Columns category for its End of Shift column. Recognizing excellence in publishing, this award lauds the individual contributions of registered nurses who share their personal stories in the column.
Three End of Shift columns that were represented in the awards program and published nationally in Nurse.com’s magazines include: “Dying Patient Invigorated by Children's Visit” by Maria Tessinari, RN, OCN; “Long-Term Care Nurse Finds Ways to Reach Challenging Clients” by Mary Claire McNamee, RN; and “RN's Daughter Provides Valuable Nursing Lessons” by Jill Wall, RN, BSN, CRNI.
“These End of Shift stories resonate with our nursing audience and often bring them and our staff to tears,” said Heather Cygan, vice president of news and managing editor. “I am proud that my staff and the RNs who write these stories have been recognized for sharing personal tales from the bedside that offer valuable lessons and insight.”
This is the third consecutive year Nurse.com has received an APEX Award for Publication Excellence; it is Nurse.com’s fourth APEX Award since 2004.
“This recognition is particularly poignant because the End of Shift column is written by members of GHG's nurse audience,” said Melyni Serpa, Nurse.com president and CEO. “A popular read in print and digital, the column provides a vehicle for nurses to tell their own stories of patient care and nursing. Published submissions tend to be audience favorites, and they routinely spark interaction on social media and in letters to the editor. Nurse.com is proud to receive this award and to continue to be a voice for nurses across the U.S.”
