Awards

Michigan Excellent Award in Emergency Nursing
Over thirty years ago, the Michigan Council of the Emergency Department Nurses Association (EDNA) proposed the development of an award that honored a Michigan emergency department nurse who excelled in emergency care. Marie Hand, an original Treasurer of the Michigan State Council, and the "Gray Ghost" of Detroit General and Detroit Receiving Emergency Departments, offerred to provide a monetary award. This award was named in her honor; The Marie Hand Award. As years passed and Marie moved on to Florida and "Up North", the award name changed to the "Michigan Excellence in Emergency Nursing Award".

Nominate your friend, chapter, colleague, or manager to recognize their work in ENA or emergency nursing. Awardees must be a current ENA member and have an unrestricted nursing license. Winners are announced at the evening awards reception at the Soaring Eagle Resort and Conference Center. The awards will be presented at the opening reception at the Annual Michigan Emergency Nurses Conference in Mt Pleasant. This is a great way to recognize some of the many excellent providers of emergency care in this state.
