The field of nominees is then narrowed to 100 by a panel of reviewers, which includes nursing professionals and previous award winners.

Overall 26 UnityPoint Health® Iowa nurses were selected as part of the 100 Great Iowa Nurses for 2018. The nurses will be honored at the 100 Great Iowa Nurses Celebration in Des Moines on Sunday, May 6. The 100 Great Nurses program is in its 14th year.
