The Georgia Nurse of the Year Awards (NOTY) is an awards event and fundraiser that celebrates the healthcare community to recognize nursing excellence and achievements in research, education, quality patient care, innovation, and leadership. Each award will be presented to the most outstanding nurse within each select category.

Nurses are first nominated by peers, nurse managers, supervisors or even the families they have impacted. Following, each nurse is asked to submit an application to be considered. Each application is carefully reviewed and scored by a committee of Chief Nursing Officers and other nurse leaders from the healthcare community in the state of Georgia.

The event recognizes women in the following categories:

Advanced Practice ♦ Community Health ♦ Critical Care ♦ Emergency Care ♦ Emerging Leader / Rising Star ♦ General Medical ♦ Hospice, Home Health, Palliative Care, Long-Term Acute Care ♦ Informatics, Research & Evidence-Based Practice ♦ Managed Care ♦ NICU ♦ Nursing Administration ♦ Nurse Education ♦ Oncology ♦ Pediatrics ♦ Student Nursing ♦ Surgical Services ♦ Women's Health ♦ Distinguished Nurse of the Year
