AMSN PRISM Award Price Increase and Revised Questions & Rubrics


The AMSN PRISM Award® is the premier award in the practice of med-surg nursing. There is no other award specifically for med-surg units, and the stringent vetting process allows recipients to know that they attained truly exemplary recognition as a med-surg unit.

AMSN has worked diligently to provide a better experience for our applicants and award recipients. We recently revised the AMSN PRISM Award questions and rubrics to provide our applicants with a better understanding of what the requirements are to achieve the award. The new application will launch on January 1, 2023.

As we shared with you last year, we are slowly phasing in our price increase over the course of a few years. Starting January 1, 2023, the second phase will be an application fee increase from $1,000 to $2,000.

The current application will be available to submit/finalize through November 30, 2022, and will not be accessible after this date.  All applications finalized/submitted before November 30, 2022, will be honored with the current fee, so we highly encourage you to submit your application soon to take advantage of this offer. 

As always, we are committed to providing quality service to you and appreciate your continued support. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at if you have questions or need assistance with your current application.

Please note
Access to the online AMSN PRISM Award application will be closed from December 1, 2022 - December 31, 2022, for application maintenance.
