Chicagoland Super Star Community and Public Health Nurses - Now Is Your Chance to Win $25,000
Date:4/17/2008

a $25,000 cash prize. At that time, an undisclosed number of finalists will also be announced, each receiving a smaller cash prize of up to $5,000.

For the past seven years, the VNA Foundation has honored local nurses to recognize the service that public health/community health nurses provide, highlight the value of nursing in the community and -- most importantly -- help attract young people to the profession to create new "super stars" while decreasing the nursing shortage in our city and the nation.

"This award is intended to showcase the unwavering commitment of community health nurses and the vital role they play in providing much-needed care to the medically underserved in local communities," said Rob DiLeonardi, Executive Director, VNA Foundation of Chicago. "Community health nurses work long hours for less pay than many other nursing specialties. It is important that we recognize public health nurses for their important contributions and dedication to their patients. We are very proud to honor these nurses -- they truly are 'super stars' in every sense of the word."

The Need for Awareness

The nation's public health care crisis is constantly under debate with an estimated 43.6 million people in the United States, or 14.8 percent of the population, without health insurance. Public health nurses in Chicago unselfishly care for the thousands of medically underserved here in our very own communities, and they play a vital role in serving the needs of the un- and under-insured population despite often challenging and difficult situations. In its seventh year, the 2008 VNA Foundation of Chicago's "Super Star" award will recognize one winner and several finalists in the hope of highlighting their many contributions while simultaneously shining a light on the need for more nurses in Chicago to choose community health nursing as a career.
