22 Ochsner Nurses Named to “Great 100 Nurses of Louisiana” List

NEW ORLEANS – Twenty-two registered nurses with Ochsner Health System and its affiliated hospitals were recognized as 2018 Great 100 Nurses.

The Great 100 Nurses Foundation was founded in New Orleans, Louisiana 32 years ago, and since then has honored thousands of nurses across Louisiana, North Carolina, Texas and Oklahoma. Since 1986, the Great 100 Nurses of Louisiana Foundation has recognized outstanding nursing accomplishments and successes. The annual honorees are selected by their peers and patients, based on their achievements in four areas: Clinical/Community, Administration, Research and Education.
