Great 100 President's Letter April 2020

Nomination Submission Deadline is April 15, 2020 for the 2020 NC Great 100


First and foremost, the North Carolina Great 100 Nurses Board of Directors deeply appreciates each nurses' individual dedication and perseverance during these rather difficult and stressful times. Our profession has never been tested like this in the past, however, collectively we will be able to withstand this challenge.

Considering present-day events, the Great 100 Board of Directors' Executive Committee and Selections sub-committee have discussed the pending April 15, 2020 nomination submission deadline. After thoughtful consideration, the decision was made to maintain the original April 15, 2020 timeline. The rationale supporting this decision is as follows:

  1. The total nominations submitted to date are on-track with prior year submissions.

  2. By extending the nomination deadline, dates would likely coincide with COVID19's anticipated peak in North Carolina.

  3. The nomination submission deadline is the first of many in a sequence. Altering the nomination deadline would create further delays, impacting the entire process of nomination submission through recognition of the 2020 NC Great 100.

Now more than ever, The Great 100 Nurses of North Carolina Board of Directors is committed in continuing to recognize outstanding nurses throughout North Carolina. What we are facing today will showcase those Registered Nurses who truly deserve this once in a lifetime honor.

If you should have any questions or concerns, you are always welcomed to contact me at president@great100.org.

Wishing you comfort and safety,

Jeffrey T. Friday MSN, RN, NE-BC
President, The Great 100 Board
