A family created the award in memory of their loved one who died from an auto-immune disease. During that time, the family was overwhelmed by the amount of love nurses showed them.

Stephanie Spencer said she always tries to be extra caring to her patients.

"It's not just a normal job, you're taking care of people and to show somebody that you truly care who is probably here not having the best day of their life to begin with, I think is very important," said Spencer.

Along with the international recognition, nurses honored are given a hand carved statue from a tribe in Africa. It represents the sacred relationship between a health care worker and a patient.
