Four nurses with Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County were honored during the Wyoming Nursing Association's recent Nursing Summit and Convention "Guardians of Nursing: Protecting Patients, Protecting Ourselves."

The 2022 WNA Nursing Award winners were announced during the September event in Casper. The WNA also was able to celebrate the 2020 and 2021 award winners in person.

This year, MHSC Chief Nursing Officer Ann Clevenger, received the WNA 2022 Excellence in Leadership – Lighting the Way Award.

This award is for a WNA member who, during their career, has shown a lifetime achievement in quality, caring, service and/or dedication to innovation or provision of patient care.

Clevenger was nominated by co-workers and fellow nurses for the Southwest Region award, which she won in May 2022. Peers throughout the state then vote on those nominees.

The award is given to a nurse who has developed an innovative and unique approach to nursing theory and knowledge in any practice setting.
