Nurse.com by OnCourse Learning’s consistent coverage of important nursing topics, along with creative strides to provide relevant content has earned the group multiple awards in 2018.
The three quality nursing content and creative awards distinguish Nurse.com by OnCourse Learning’s healthcare thought leadership across the globe. These spring awards were presented by the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors and the Hermes 2018 Creative Awards.
About the ASHPE award
The recognition includes the prestigious Gold Award for Best Use of Infographics from the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors. The winning infographic, “Here’s how you really feel,” was published in Nurse.com’s National Nurses Week digital edition.
“Every day, our team is dedicated to providing nurses with the latest education, news and career resources,” said Lance Pine, OnCourse Learning’s vice president, recruitment & advertising solutions. “This infographic was a popular feature because it showcased the voices of nurses around the country and how they feel about the nursing profession.”
Featuring seven categories of data, including satisfaction and morale, salary and benefits, personal and professional growth and making a difference, the infographic highlights nurses’ perspectives in the workplace and could serve as a powerful tool for both healthcare staff and recruiters.
“We focus on nurses — what they need, what drives them, what inspires them — and providing this in a visually stimulating, user-friendly way,” said Sallie Jimenez, healthcare content manager for advertising solutions at OnCourse Learning. “We’re honored to be receiving awards that tell us we are hitting our goals.”
ASHPE honored winners in 32 different categories this year with Gold, Silver and Bronze awards. The winners included writers, editors and graphic artists. The awards program provides publications an opportunity to measure their work against the very best in the healthcare sector.
“The animated, digital infographic was designed to be intuitive,” said Mike Milinac, creative manager for advertising services at OnCourse Learning. “This creative award highlights our innovative methods and the effectiveness of our design to share our survey data with our audience.”
