Halo Launches The Most Interesting Nurse in the World Contest
Who will you nominate?
Recognizing how vital nurses are to the clinical and emotional care of their patients, Halo Health™ wanted to give back to the community that makes up a significant portion of its user base. Today it launches The Most Interesting Nurse™ in the World contest, with the award being a $5,000 vacation.
With so many organizations providing awards to nurses for their nursing excellence, Halo wanted to go above and beyond and honor nurses who are not only incredible care givers, but also have full schedules outside of work. So many nurses juggle their demanding career with other activities including family, continuing education, personal hobbies or interests – and they find a balance and do it in an interesting way.
Allison Morin MSN, RN–BC and Director of Nursing Informatics at Halo was the inspiration. She spent years as a pediatric nurse before moving into a more technical role, and what makes her Halo’s Most Interesting Nurse are some of the activities she’s done in her life in addition to nursing – including as a member of a professional BMW race team! She started as a wheel washer and paid her own way to the races until she became the manager of one of the three cars the team raced – in between shifts as a nurse.
“Working on cars was something I started doing with my dad, and it morphed into me working on a racing team,” said Ali. “It was a lot of work but very rewarding – much like nursing.”
The contest opens today and allows people to nominate their “Most Interesting Nurse.” Halo is taking nominations through November 14th and voting on finalists will begin December 3rd. The winner will be announced on December 14th and will receive a $5,000 gift card for a vacation – details and rules are listed on the nomination website, www.MostInterestingNurse.com.
