Tracey Anderson -- a neurocritical care nurse practitioner, director of Neurocritical Care Program Development and instructor for the University of Colorado School of Medicine in the Department of Neurosurgery at University of Colorado Hospital -- recently received the structural empowerment award from the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

Five awards, the first Magnet Nurse of the Year Awards to recognize the outstanding contributions of patient care clinicians working in Magnet hospitals, were handed out during the National Magnet Conference in Baltimore. The awards represent significant contributions in clinical practice, education, research or service. Nominees are judged by a panel of nurse experts for innovation, consultation, leadership and professional risk taking.
