“Doctors are the brain of the healthcare system, but Nurses are the heart and soul. I can say this with confidence, they are running the entire system.”

Founder Chairman and Managing Director

Nurses play a crucial role in impacting healthcare delivery through efficient patient care and by creating clinical benchmarks for the world to follow. The Aster Guardians Global Nursing Award aims to not just celebrate the spirit of nursing, but also to inspire future caregivers to continue making the world a better place to live in.
