More than 100 nurses from around the state will be recognized on Thursday, during National Nurses Week. The Nightingale Awards for Excellence in Nursing program celebrates outstanding nurses and nursing students. Kathy Peirce from VNA Health Care and Linda Santucci, a VNA Health Care nurse and award recipient, join the show to talk about the event.

The women talk about who is being recognized and share advice for people who may be considering working in the field of the nursing.

Since 2003, the Greater Hartford Nightingale Awards Gala has honored nearly 900 nurses and awarded $54,000 in nursing scholarships to local nursing students. This year’s awards take place at the Hartford Marriott Downtown on May 9, 2013 to recognize and celebrate exceptional nurses.
