Public To Vote for Two Grand Prize Winners of Oak Point University's Calling All #BadassNurses Contest
CHICAGO, May 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Oak Point University, an academic leader that has prepared students for successful careers as nurses and nursing leaders for more than 100 years, is "Calling All #BadassNurses" for recognition and reward in a contest launched during National Nurses Week. Now through June 10, nominate yourself, or someone else, by submitting a short narrative and photo or video for prizes culminating on July 7 with the award of two grand prize vacations and the opportunity to appear in phase two of the "Built to Be Badass" marketing campaign.
The contest is part of the "Built to Be Badass" initiative that features nurses and their stories with the goal to share with the world what nurses do every day is not only difficult but highly challenging—in all aspects—emotionally, physically, and intellectually. And they do their jobs with empathy, grace, determination, and grit. Nurses are smart, resilient, and resourceful like no other. They are true badasses.
Phase one of the campaign, featured on billboards, transit advertising, and radio in the Chicagoland area — utilizes Oak Point University alumni stories to illustrate the "badassery" of nursing in action and offers inspiration for the next generation of nurses. Hearing the life stories and career arcs, the far-from-ordinary career opportunities, and the paths that led from anguish to metamorphosis give "Built to Be Badass" the power to connect.
"We believe nurses should be recognized as more than heroes. Nurses are, and have always been, badass," says Therese A. Scanlan, EdD, president of Oak Point University. "They are ingrained with a distinct mix of passion, grit, and ingenuity that allows them to make a difference in countless lives."
Eighteen standout submissions will be selected from the pool of entrants, each winning a $500 gift card. These eighteen finalists will be entered to win one of two grand prizes; the grand prize winners will be selected via public voting to begin on June 15 and end on June 30. The contest will recognize a 50/50 split of finalists and grand prize winners of those who graduated from Oak Point University (formerly Resurrection University) and those who graduated from other nursing programs.
Nominate yourself, as a badass nurse should, or someone else at badassnurses.org.
