At every NANDA-I conference, we have the opportunity to acknowledge the contributions to the Association from nurses around the globe. We have five categories of awards: two of these are awarded by the Editor of The International Journal of Nursing Knowledge (Editor’s Award & the Rosemary Carroll Johnson Award), and one of these is awarded by the President (Mentor Award). The other two awards are based on nominations from the NANDA-I membership: the Founders’ Award and the Unique Contribution Award. Descriptions of all awards is below.
If you would like to nominate a NANDA-I member for the Founders Award and/or the Unique Contribution Award, please review the description of the awards, and then send ONE PDF document with all of the following information:
- Full name of candidate, and his/her credentials
- Your full name and credentials (multiple individuals can join together to nominate someone)
- Why you feel this individual should be considered for the award. Be sure to specifically address the purpose of the award for which you are nominating this individual, and how he or she has contributed specifically to the work of NANDA-I
- CV of the individual to be considered for the award.
Please send your PDF document to our CEO, Dr. Heather Herdman (firstname.lastname@example.org) NO LATER than midnight (CST) on May 15, 2021. Again, please be sure that all of the information is included in one PDF, not multiple documents!
The Founders Award is presented by the NANDA-I Board of Directors, to those individuals who have made a lasting, internationally-reaching contribution to education, implementation, development, research, and/or informatics applications of nursing diagnoses.
UNIQUE CONTRIBUTION AWARD
The Unique Contribution Award is presented by the NANDA-I Board of Directors, to those individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the advancement of nursing diagnosis.
This is the highest honor awarded by NANDA-I, and is bestowed by the NANDA-I President. This award recognizes a nurse leader who significantly influenced the use of NANDA-I terminology within professional nursing practice, education, research, health policy, or informatics. This individual has been a formal or informal leader within NANDA-I, and has invested in the professional development of others.
This award recognizes outstanding contribution to the advancement of the NANDA-I journal.
