GKCBNA Nursing Awards
Established in 2002, The Nurses of Color Awards annually recognize nurses of African descent for their dedicated service and commitment to the health care of the citizens of greater Kansas City. These nurses have demonstrated outstanding devotion and concern for their community. Regardless of the level of professional nursing (LPN, RN, APRN), we value their contribution in promoting better health and caring for the health of our community.

- Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) Award

Award will be presented at the GKCBNA Award and Scholarship dinner. Winners must be present at the award ceremony.
