Nurse Jackie#Nurse of the Year - presented by Showtime

Nurses are the uncelebrated professionals who serve as the backbone of our hospitals and medical system. Twitter has made them heard, and now they’re being celebrated...

The #Nurse of the Year Shorty Award, created in partnership with the hit SHOWTIME® series NURSE JACKIE, will be awarded to a nurse who is making a difference through Twitter and social media.

The winner will be selected based upon the number of nominations they’ve received, the impact and creativity of their tweets, and the level of innovation in their use of social media as judged by the Shorty Awards Editorial Board. Only real nurses are eligible for this Award.

Actor Stephen Wallem, who plays nurse Thor Lundgren on the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-nominated series, will announce the winner live at the 3rd Annual Shorty Awards on March 28.

Nominations in this category will be open until Friday, March 25 at 11:59 PM EST.

The third season of NURSE JACKIE will premiere on Monday, March 28th at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME.

For more information on NURSE JACKIE, visit the show's website and follow @SHO_Jackie on Twitter.
