INS Awards and Recognition

INS Awards and Recognition Program

The Infusion Excellence Award program recognizes leadership, education, research, innovation, and certification as categories most reflective of today’s infusion nurse and the infusion specialty. By developing individual awards represented in these categories, INS and INCC will help honor INS member clinicians who have made significant contributions to their organizations and the infusion specialty.

INS members can nominate individuals within their professional community to receive these awards. Potential recipients will be determined by the INS Awards and Recognition Committee. Award recipients will be recognized on this web page, through an INS podcast, and in a special column in INSider.
