We want to hear stories from all #badassnurses. The campaign will feature a three-month “Calling All #BadassNurses” Contest that runs from May 6 through July 7.

We invite you to nominate yourself (as a true nurse badass should) or someone else. Nominations must include a short narrative and photo(s) or a video in one of two categories: alumna/e nurse or non-alumna/e nurse.

Up for grabs are:

  • 18 $500 gift cards
  • two badass vacation packages
  • “Built to Be Badass” campaign glory (a billboard, maybe?), and
  • ultimate badassery bragging rights.

The “Built to Be Badass” Campaign

We’re excited to launch our “Built to Be Badass” campaign during the 2022 National Nurses Week. At its core, “Built to Be Badass” celebrates the profession of nursing, the nurses of today and tomorrow, the history of nursing, and the history of Oak Point University as an institution that’s educated nurses since 1914.

The campaign features nurses and their stories with the goal to celebrate and empower them. We want to tell the world that what nurses do every day is not only difficult but highly challenging—in all aspects—emotionally, physically, and intellectually. And they do their jobs with empathy, grace, determination, and grit. Nurses are smart, resilient, and resourceful like no other. They are true badasses.

Meet Our Campaign Badasses

Oak Point University alumni stories illustrate the “badassery” of nursing in action and offer inspiration for the next generation of nurses. Hearing the life stories and career arcs, the far-from-ordinary career opportunities, and the paths that led from anguish to metamorphosis give “Built to Be Badass” the power to connect. We want those with similar shared hopes and dreams to hear the stories and say, “Yes, I am a badass, and that can be me!”
