UHM Nursing STAR Program Launch

Do you know of a staff member who has demonstrated excellence in performing their job responsibilities? The professional staff at our School are integral to the success of all our efforts. They  advise students, schedule classes, coordinate clinical placements, manage programs, and process all the paperwork required for payroll, purchasing, and event planning.

UH Nursing logo To celebrate their contributions, we have created the UHM Nursing Staff Appreciation and Recognition (STAR) program to recognize staff who demonstrate the highest standards in their commitment to supporting our mission, vision and values. Our intention is to create a year-round practice of thanking those who consistently demonstrate excellence in what they do for our School community. The selected staff member will receive a gift certificate and STAR pin to recognize their contribution.

To be nominated, a staff member’s performance should meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Consistently demonstrates excellence in the performance of their job responsibilities.
  • Consistently exhibits a superb and ongoing high level of service to their customers.
  • Consistently produces the highest quality of work product.
  • Performed a significant and exceptional role in the completion of a high impact project or initiative.

Any student, faculty or staff member may submit nominations by sending an email to The Dean will form a committee to review nominations against the above criteria. Once selected, the Office of the Dean will notify the supervisor of the employee so the award may be presented to the recipient. The awardee will be highlighted in the UHM Nursing News email and on the School’s website. Our first UHM Nursing STAR will be announced in the March UHM Nursing News email.
