Memorial Sloan Kettering Celebrates Exceptional Service in Nursing: 2024 Robbins Family Awards

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) and the Robbins Family Foundation proudly announce that eight distinguished MSK nurses and one nursing team were honored with the 2024 Robbins Family Award for Nursing Excellence. The awards coincide with National Nurses Week (May 6 – 12).

“MSK nurses personify compassion, provide comfort and reassurance to patients and their caregivers, and have unmatched professional expertise. It is an honor to celebrate these dynamic nursing professionals and colleagues as we continue to advance MSK’s mission and core values,” said Tracy Gosselin, PhD, RN, AOCN, NEA-BC, FAAN; Senior Vice President, Chief Nurse Executive, and Chair of Nursing at MSK. “We are grateful to the Robbins Family Foundation for their continued support and presence at our annual Excellence in Nursing Award program.”

“MSK nurses play an indispensable role in giving the finest care to their patients, and MSK would not be MSK without the thousands of nurses and care team members whose life calling has brought them here,” says Mr. Robbins. “The Robbins Family Foundation is proud to support this recognition program and honor these exceptional nurses.”
