nurses house is run by a volunteer board of directors and funds come mainly from donations by nurses and nursing organizations, and through various fundraising activities.
the 2009 dolphin award ceremony and fundraiser will be the group's third annual event of it's kind. this year, nurses house will honor maimonides medical center and nurse staff for their overall contributions and support of nurses house.
