Nurses House Dolphin Award

“The acrobatic, high energy dolphin must spend most of its time hunting to survive. But when a pod member is sick or injured, others will set aside their own needs to come to its rescue. A pair of dolphins, one on each side, will stay beside it, lifting it to the surface to breathe each breath – sometimes for days at a time – until it recovers the strength to swim for itself." - Unknown

The dolphin is the symbol of Nurses House and represent the overall mission of nurses helping nurses. The Nurses House Dolphin Award is given on an annual basis to an individual or group that explemplifies this mission.
