Those are just a few of the qualities judges took into account when they recognized nurses during Mpls. St. Paul Magazine’s 2015 Outstanding Nurses Awards on July 14.

The magazine announced the winners during a ceremony at MUSE Event Center in Minneapolis. A total of 20 nurses employed in the Twin Cities region received honors, including the following nurses:

Eligible nurses are nominated for the awards by the public and the medical community, according to information released by Mpls.St.Paul Magazine. Nominations are then vetted and judged by a team of veteran nurses working in the profession.

Nominations were assessed on a seven-point rubric that included: professionalism; bedside manner; patient interaction; credentials and experience; impact on an organization; leadership; and an “it” factor exemplifying kindness, compassion and empathy. Additional weight was given to those who received multiple nominations from a variety of sources, and to those nominated by their patients.

The magazine initially identified 70 finalists for the awards. This year marks the fourth year of the Outstanding Nurses Awards.
