2016 Awards

Awards are presented at each biennial conference, to recognize outstanding accomplishments by NANDA-I members. Award recipients are nominated by NANDA-I member colleagues, with final recipient determination made by the Board of Directors.

The Mentor Award is presented at the discretion of the NANDA-I President, and is intended to honor an individual or individuals who have excelled at mentorship in their own practice setting (e.g., mentoring students, clinical nurses, informatics nurses, researchers, etc.) as well as within the NANDA-I organization itself. Therefore, this is considered the highest award possible from the organization.
