UNMC College of Nursing Creative Writing Awards


Nurses tell stories. Over coffee on break we tell stories. After work over pancakes we tell stories. Stories make us laugh, build camaraderie, and help us cope. We should not be the only ones who hear our stories. The world needs to hear your story of nursing. That is what this award is about.

We are collecting stories from students about nursing experiences. We are going to print them and place them on the web for the world to see, enjoy and learn about nursing. Without a doubt, YOUR story belongs there; but it won't be shared unless you enter the competition.


ATTENTION all nursing students!
