Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Nurses are the backbone of the medical community and this week is National Nurses Week.
Now through May 22, the Las Vegas community can nominate their favorite nurse and/or non-profit for the Clark County Medical Society's 2014 Winged Heart Award.
The award recognizes outstanding nurses who are dedicated to raising the bar of health care in Southern Nevada, and non-profit organizations whose mission is to improve health and wellness.
Sherrilyn Coffman and Erika Webber, both 2013 award recipients, stopped by Action News Midday on Thursday to talk about the award.
