Over the years, the School of Nursing has been proud to recognize our ALUMNI with three awards. We have honoured numerous PARTNERS with two important awards, and in 2020, we were thrilled to be able to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our PRECEPTORS with two additional awards. Please take the time to consider an individual associated with the school of nursing for one of these accolades. Details of the awards and links to the nomination forms are provided below.

Alumni Recognition Awards

We want to hear from you! In January, 2023, the School of Nursing will begin accepting nominations for candidates to receive the 2023 School of Nursing Alumni Recognition Awards.

There are three different awards: Recent Alumni Award, Award of Distinction, and Alumni Recognition.

If you know a UBC Nursing alum who has made an exceptional contribution to nursing following the completion of their UBC Nursing education, then we want to hear from you. We are seeking those outstanding individuals so that we may recognize them during Nursing Week in the second week of May.

Nominations for 2022 are now closed.

Partner Awards

The School of Nursing is grateful to all its partners and donors who have made possible many of the School's initiatives and support for students throughout the years. Those who have made outstanding contributions are honoured with either the Donor Partnership Award or the Community Partnership Award. Recipients of these awards are determined without a formal nomination process. This recognition will not be awarded in 2022.

Preceptor Awards

Recognize Excellence | Reward Knowledge | Recommend Your Preceptor

Since 2020 two new awards are available for recognizing the contributions of preceptors: The Erickson Kline Moerike Nurse Practitioner Preceptor Award and the Award for Excellence as a BSN Clinical Preceptor.

Erickson Kline Moerike Nurse Practitioner Preceptor Award

Mr. Mitchel Erickson and Mr. Martin Kline have established the Erickson-Kline-Moerike Nurse Practitioner Preceptor Endowment that will support a prize to recognize excellent NP preceptors in the Master of Nursing – Nurse Practitioner program in UBC School of Nursing. The prize will be awarded by the Director of the School of Nursing, based on nominations from current and recently graduated NP students, evaluated by a panel of Nursing faculty.

In order to be eligible to be nominated by a student, the preceptor must:

  • Have worked as a preceptor with UBC NP students for at least 500 clinical hours
  • Cannot receive this prize more than once every three years.
  • NOTE: School of Nursing Faculty are not eligible for this prize.
