As stated by the DFW Great 100 Nurses, more than 50,000 nurses practice in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and it helps raise the awareness of the contributions of nurses to patient care, research, leadership, education and community service. These highly revered nurses are not only at the bedside, but in the boardroom, schoolroom, and throughout the community. They are honored for having demonstrated superior contributions to the art and science of nursing and having upheld the high standards of the nursing profession.
