“Leadership is not measured by the number of accolades, positions you hold, or amount of wealth you accumulate. You’re on the path to being your best when you have reached a point on your leadership journey where you can be of assistance and influence a larger sphere of society.
I became a nurse because I wanted to care for others, and I wanted to reduce health disparities and inequities. But I learned early on that I needed to care and act. That’s why I’ve sought out leadership positions in organizations that help to provide safe and equitable care and access for everyone. I’ve tried to change structures and policies to break down barriers and reduce disparities so that more people can lead healthier lives.”

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.”
Following are the 2014 “40 Under 40” Nurse Leaders (in first name alphabetical order)

The need to diversify the nursing workforce in Nebraska is essential. The overall goal of this toolkit is to ensure a response in Nebraska that addresses the health care needs of an increasingly diverse population. This toolkit is a product of NAC’s State Implementation Grant (SIP) funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Actions initiated through the SIP grant respond to the call by the Institute of Medicine’s 2010 landmark report “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health”. This resource, while broad, does not contain all possible sources of information and is meant to stimulate thinking about entrance into the nursing profession.
