As part of National Nurses Week (May 6-12), held in honor of the largest health-care workforce in the United States, two nurse leaders from the University of Arizona College of Nursing will be honored by their peers during the annual 2019 Tucson Fabulous 50 Nurses gala held by the Tucson Nurses’ Week Foundation on Saturday, May 11.
The 22nd annual event is the city's capstone celebration to National Nursing Week and is sponsored by the Tucson Nurses Week Foundation. The Fabulous 50 nurses were chosen from throughout the Tucson area by their peers for their role modeling and mentoring of others, concern for humanity and their contributions to the Tucson community and the profession of nursing.
