Iowa honors its outstanding nurses, whose courage, competence, and commitment to patients and the nursing profession stands out above all others

The 100 Great Iowa Nurses program identifies 100 outstanding nurses every year whose courage, competence, and commitment to patients and the nursing profession stand out above all others. These nurses go above and beyond to contribute significantly to the profession of nursing. This program was initiated in 2005 by Melanie Dreher, who served as dean of the University of Iowa College of Nursing at

[10/27/21]   At this time, the University of Iowa has made the difficult decision to no longer manage the 100 Great Nurses of Iowa program. If you or a member of your organization would like to take over the planning and implementation of the program, please contact Katie Machovsky, director of strategic communication and external relations for the University of Iowa College of Nursing at [email protected], and she will be happy to provide information to aid in the continuation of this program.

We condemn the underlying culture of racism and violence in our country that has led us to where we are today. We remain committed to making our institution diverse, equitable, and inclusive for all our students, faculty, staff, patients, and our community. We’re so proud of the hundreds of our faculty and staff who participated in #WhiteCoatsForBlackLives, and we stand in solidarity with those who call for justice and reconciliation.

Made by a Nurse: Infant Earmuffs

A cool story about one of our honorees, who has helped some very tiny patients in flight.

linkedin.com A peace dividend of the war against COVID-19 has undoubtedly been mainstreaming the notion of a MakerNurse in every hospital around the world that’s at war with the virus. While history brought us to this moment, the nurses rising to the challenge didn’t spontaneously become tinkerers.

Congratulations!

Julie Wiebold, MSN, RN, CCRN, is one of the 16 nurses from our hospital that were honored as 100 Great Iowa Nurses. 👩‍⚕️Her nominator says, “Julie has demonstrated strong leadership qualities and willingness to take on challenges and grow professionally. After taking on a new role, Julie stepped up to be the chair of the 2019 Pulmonary Rehabilitation Conference planning committee. The conference was a great success, which is a direct testament to the time and effort put in by Julie and the pulmonary rehab team.”

Congratulations to Julie and all the other 2020 honorees! We’re proud of and grateful for you. 💛 http://spr.ly/61861CfnE

We are sad to announce that we have decided to cancel the 100 Great Iowa Nurses Celebration scheduled for May 3, in Des Moines at the Iowa Events Center. Although the decision wasn’t an easy one, we think it’s the right decision to make. As nursing and health care leaders, we all know how important it is to do what we can to support social distancing and flatten the curve. We hope you and your family stay healthy and safe during this difficult time.

It's not always easy to be a nurse and we recognize how amazing you are!

"She's gonna kill me for this picture, but can we just give it up for nurses for a minute?

My twin sister Caty just wrapped up her fourth shift in a row. That's around 53+ hours in four days. That's not including the 1.5 hours she's in the car each day. She usually doesn't get a chance to eat lunch or even drink much water (and she has to dress like a blueberry...I mean, come on). She is so good at what she does that she often forgets how to take care of herself while she's taking care of her patients.

This picture is from a night back in July where she came to my house after a particularly hard day. She delivered a stillborn. Have you guys ever really thought about what a labor and delivery nurse sees?

They see great joy in smooth deliveries and healthy moms and babies. They see panic and anxiety when a new mom is scared. They see fear when a stat c-section is called. They see peace when the mom has support from her family, because not all new moms do. They see teenagers giving birth. They see an addicted mom give birth to a baby who is withdrawing. They see Child Protective Services come. They see funeral homes come. Did you know that they have to make arrangements for the funeral home to come pick up the baby? I didn't either.

Caty, and all other nurses, you are SPECIAL. You bless your patients and their families more than you will ever know. Thank you for all that you do."

Nurses are awesome!

Not everyone goes to work and saves lives, but nurses do. Recently, a team of three Cardiovascular Procedural Recovery Unit (CPRU) nurses brought a patient back from cardiac arrest by performing advanced cardiac life support independently.

We’re not surprised by this level of skill and teamwork, and we’re grateful for our team of nurses who are changing medicine and changing lives every day. http://spr.ly/6187E2QO7
