Agatha Hodgins Award for Outstanding Accomplishment

 
 
 
Purpose
The Agatha Hodgins Award for Outstanding Accomplishment was established in 1975 to recognize individuals whose foremost dedication to excellence has furthered the art and science of nurse anesthesia.
 
The award was established to honor Agatha Hodgins (1877-1945), founder and first president of the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists. A notable pioneer in the field of anesthesiology, Miss Hodgins was one of the first to perfect the nitrous oxide-oxygen technique of anesthesia. In 1915 she founded the influential Lakeside School of Anesthesia in Cleveland and was the visionary force in the establishment of the profession of nurse anesthetists.
 
Award
The Agatha Hodgins Award is a crystal urn inscribed with the recipient’s name and the year of the presentation. The recipient’s name is also added to a plaque bearing the names of previous recipients, which is displayed next to an identical urn in the AANA Executive Office. The Award is presented during the AANA Annual Meeting.
 
Eligibility
The nominee may be a CRNA or a non-CRNA who has worked toward furthering the profession of nurse anesthesia. The nominee may be living or deceased.
