STTI's International Awards for Nursing Excellence are based on the society's dedication to fostering high professional nursing standards, recognizing superior achievement, developing leadership, and encouraging creative work.
Awards are conferred to nurses each biennium for contributions in the fields of technology, media, chapter excellence, research, leadership, and practice.
Membership is not a qualification for all awards. Self and group nominations are accepted for some awards. STTI Board of Directors, STTI staff, STTI consultants and contracted staff, and members of the judging committee are not eligible. Award recipients from the 2013 and 2015 award cycle are not eligible to receive the same award in 2017.
