MSNCB Co-sponsors the AMSN PRISM Award

Your Unit, Your Award

MSNCB and the Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN) co-sponsor the AMSN PRISM Award™, the first award to provide special recognition to the exemplary practice of medical-surgical units.

The professional nurse is responsible for the individual practice, but it takes a dynamic, energetic, and committed group of professionals working as a team to achieve and sustain outstanding patient and staff satisfaction outcomes.

Through this distinguished honor, AMSN and MSNCB identify and celebrate medical-surgical units that achieve sustained excellence through exhibiting:

  • Effective leadership
  • Recruitment and retention of competent staff members
  • Evidence-based practice
  • Positive patient outcomes
  • Healthy work environment
  • Lifelong learning of unit staff members
