2021 Tenacious Caregiver NOMINATIONS
Calling All Nominations for the 2021 Tenacious Caregiver Award!
Do you know a nurse who is the epitome of caring? Is there an administrator, program manager or supervisor that has supported the NFP team through thick and thin? If someone comes to mind when you hear these questions – take a minute to nominate that individual for the Tenacious Caregiver Award!
This year we have three nomination categories- NFP Nurse, Nurse Supervisor and Administrator. The NSO will be choosing the top performing site based on fidelity to the model and outcomes.
All four Tenacious Caregiver awards will be presented at the 2021 National Symposium in Seattle, Washington in September. One NFP Nurse, one Nurse Supervisor and one Administrator/Program Manager will receive an all-expense paid trip to Seattle to be honored amongst their peers. The winning network partner will be able to choose two members who receive an all-expense paid trip to Seattle to represent their team. This gives opportunity for the agency to choose team members who may not otherwise be able to attend.
Don’t delay – spread the news!
Nominations are open until June 14, 2021

2018 tenacious caregiver award RECIPIENT
We received inspiring and compelling stories and were honored to present the inaugural award to Cheryl Spicer, NFP Nurse at Sadler Health Center Nurse-Family Partnership in Carlisle, PA.
Cheryl not only consistently carries a full caseload and has been a nurse home visitor for eleven years, but she hosted numerous nursing students for one-day shadowing experiences and even mentored one of them for 120 hours. She has completed over 4,000 home visits, over 5,000 hours of face to face time with
Nurse-Family Partnership moms and 26,000 lonely miles driving to and from home visits. She is compassionate and empowering, and epitomizes the Nurse-Family Partnership mission in more ways that we can articulate. Congratulations and THANK YOU for all you do for our families!
