TMC has 13 of Tucson’s Fab 50 nurses, and one top mentor


More than one-fourth of the nurses who will be honored this year as Tucson’s Fabulous 50 Nurses are associated with TMC – as is the city’s ‘most inspirational’ nursing mentor.

The Tucson Nurses Week Foundation celebrates each year with city-wide events honoring the community’s dedicated nursing professionals. The annual Showcase of Tucson Nurses Conference will open the event on Friday, May 11, followed by the Fab 50 Nurses Gala on May 12, at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort – featuring these TMC superstars:

  • Carolyn Bertschy
  • Nancy Box
  • Valerie Crain
  • Matthew Daily
  • Janine Glaser
  • Kathryn Hughes
  • Michael Jackson
  • Roxanne Lee
  • Pamela Morris
  • Bev Rusing
  • Elizabeth Skaff
  • Jon Sumner
  • Julie Ward

In addition, the winner of the city-wide Most Inspirational Mentor Award is TMC senior vice president and Chief Operations Officer Linda Wojtowicz.

The Nurses Week Foundation grants this award each year in honor of Cheryl McGaffic, Barbara Monroe and Robin Rogers, nursing professors who lost their lives in 2002. The award recognizes a member of the Tucson nursing community who demonstrates significant leadership, skill and ability in being a role model, coach, motivator, advocate, teacher and visionary. Only previous Fabulous 50 Nurses are eligible to be named Most Inspirational Mentor.
