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

NEW ORLEANS – Thirty-one registered nurses through Ochsner Health System and the Ochsner Health Network were named among the 2017 Great 100 Nurses of Louisiana.

The Great 100 Nurses Foundation was founded in New Orleans, Louisiana 31 years ago, and since then has honored thousands of nurses across Louisiana, North Carolina, Texas and Oklahoma. Founded in 1986, the Great 100 Nurses of Louisiana Foundation recognizes outstanding nursing accomplishments and successes. The honorees are selected by their peers and patients, based on their achievements in four areas: Clinical/Community, Administration, Research and Education.
