Full Text: Linda Jennings, BSN, RN, at right, received the Tennessean's Lifetime Achievement Award in its annual Salute to Nurses Awards event held each year during National Nurses Week. Jennings, Director of Clinical Services in Government Relations, Tennessee Health Care Association, was honored for her more than 30 years as a nurse during which she instructed, taught, trained and motivated thousands of nurses across the country. Jennings began her career as an LPN in a nursing home but went on to become a registered nurse and earn a bachelor's degree in applied organizational management. Today she serves as a director of clinical services, advising and informing the administrators of 243 Tennessee Nursing Homes. Jennings was presented the award by last year's recipient, Frances Edwards, MSN, RN. Both are members of the Tennessee Nurses Association. Photo by Dan Menlove
