Aster DM Healthcare has launched the Aster Guardian Global Nursing Award to recognize the phenomenal contribution of nurses to the healthcare delivery system across the world. This is all the more relevant in the current scenario as they continue to play a pivotal role in delivering care despite the challenges produced by the Covid-19 pandemic, taking care of patients worldwide and risking their lives.
The initiative invites nurses from around the world to apply for the award by submitting nomination of their work on the mentioned site either directly or by others with citation. The start date for the application will be announced shortly.
Aster Guardian Global Nursing Award will follow a stringent multi-round review process to be managed by a third-party external agency and an independent jury consisting of well-known international figures.
After the initial review based on the set criteria, shortlisted nominations will undergo a voting process. Subsequently 10 finalists would be selected for the award ceremony, interview, and interactions with the jury. The final Aster Guardian Global Nursing Award winner will be announced on May 12, 2022 during the International Nurses Day next year. Apart from the first prize of $250,000, the nine other finalists will also be presented with monetary prizes.
Dr. Azad Moopen, founder, chairman and managing director of Aster DM Healthcare, said: “Nurses form the backbone of health care and play the most critical role in patient care, aiding recovery through professional and personal care. Through Aster Guardians Global Nursing Award, we aim to bring their sacrifices and commitment to light and celebrate them globally.
