The deadline to enter your favorite nurse for the 7th annual Elite 97 Nurses Banquet is this Sunday, August 19th at midnight. If you haven't nominated that special nurse in your life yet, you can do so right here! And thanks to our title sponsor, Service Chevrolet Cadillac, and presenting sponsor, Iberia Medical Center.

But with all this talk of the wonderful nurses profession, I wanted to pass along some of my favorite TV nurses, who, let's be honest, feel like family sometimes. Be listening Monday morning for the 97 winners, and we hope to see you all on September 11th at the Petroleum Club for another fun night!
