ARN Member Awards
ARN offers its members an opportunity to acknowledge their peers and colleagues for exemplary work and service.
Exceptional rehabilitation nurses deserve recognition for their contributions to rehabilitation nursing. ARN Role Awards recognize colleagues in each of the categories below. Supervisors, colleagues, or family members can submit nominations-and ARN members can nominate themselves!
New in 2017: ARN role award winners will be featured at the 2017 REACH Conference at a new 30-minute networking session—Award Winning Ideas. During this session, winners will moderate a networking session with peers, share a practice challenge and discuss innovative solutions. We hope this will lead to additional discussions about new ideas and innovative solutions.
Role award winners receive one free year of ARN membership.
Role Awards are available in the following categories.
ARN Distinguished Service Award
Selected by the ARN Board of Directors and the Council of Leaders, this award recognizes an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to rehabilitation nursing and to the organization. This award is given to a member who has demonstrated leadership by participation in the Association's activities on a national, regional, and chapter level.
The ARN President's Award recognizes outstanding contributions to the field of rehabilitation nursing and to ARN. The current president may select a recipient for this award, which does not have to be given each year. The President's Award is given at the president's sole discretion.
