“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.”

The Aster Guardians Global Nursing Award was launched on 12th May 2021 (International Nurses Day). The inaugural edition took place on 12th May 2022, exactly one year later. The goal was to recognize the phenomenal contribution of nurses to the healthcare delivery system globally. They play a pivotal role and are the backbone of medical care as they work under tremendous pressure with huge commitment. This has been proven undoubtedly with their effort, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Registrations for the second edition are now open. Apply now!
