2023 Excellence in Nursing

May 11, 2023 | 6:00-10 p.m. | The Grand Lodge

On Thursday, May 11, Baltimore magazine was proud to celebrate 141 of the region’s top nurses spanning 28 specialties for their extraordinary contributions to healthcare. After receiving nominations from peers, supervisors, and patients, honorees were selected by a panel of highly experienced nurse advisors in collaboration with Baltimore magazine editors.

The winning nurses, along with 400 of their peers, friends, and family enjoyed a cocktail hour with refreshing beverages and hors d’oeuvres before dinner and a welcome from Kerry Graves of NAMI Baltimore, Laurie DeYoung of 93.1 WPOC’s the Laurie DeYoung Show, and Deborah J. Baker representing the presenting sponsor, Johns Hopkins Nursing.

An awards presentation followed, and each nurse was presented a custom plaque by Allogram to celebrate their accomplishment.
