The American Nurses Credentialing Center National Magnet Nurse of the Year® awards recognize the outstanding contributions of clinical nurses for innovation, consultation, leadership and professional risk-taking. Awards are presented in each of the five Magnet® Model components: Transformational Leadership; Structural Empowerment; Exemplary Professional Practice; New Knowledge, Innovations and Improvements; and Empirical Outcomes.

This is what they said about Christi… Christi DeLemos’ contribution to new knowledge and innovation is exemplified by her development of a mobile application designed for nurses who care for patients with stroke, traumatic brain injury and other neurological impairments. The goals of the app are to enhance bedside care through instant access to neuroscience nursing information, and to increase nursing confidence when caring for neurological patients. The mobile app was developed over a one-year period, and was reviewed by an international committee of nurses. Launched in 2015, the free Neuroscience Nurse mobile app has been downloaded by more than 1,700 users in 19 countries. A committed educator, she also produced and directed a 30-minute professional teaching video that has been translated into 10 languages and distributed in eight countries worldwide.

We are so very proud of you. You are an inspiration!
