The Nebraska Organization of Nurse Leaders (NONL) is pleased to announce two recipients of the 2014 Distinguished Nurse Leader Mentor Award.
Carol Wahl, Vice President of Patient Care Services at CHI Health Good Samaritan in Kearney, and Jody Kempnich, Advanced Nurse Administrator at CHI Health in Omaha, will receive the award during the Nebraska Action Coalition’s “40 Under 40″ celebration on Sept. 18 in Lincoln.
The recipients were nominated by staff and professional colleagues and are being recognized for their excellence in mentoring nurses and others, including through communication and relationship-building, knowledge of the health care environment, leadership, professionalism, and business skills.
Dee Ernesti, president of the NONL, said the award positively impacts patient care through nursing leadership from the bedside to the board room: “NONL acknowledges that the leadership skills necessary to transform health care do not develop in a vacuum. Not all nurses begin their career with thoughts of becoming a leader. Recognition and nurturing of emerging talent such as the “40 Under 40″ award recipients by experienced, supportive, and committed mentors and role models like Carol and Jody is the key.”
