Mentoring Program

N.O.N.L. in collaboration with the Nebraska Action Coalition Advancing Leadership Team provides the opportunity for a formal mentoring program by matching its experienced leaders with its new leaders. The goal of supporting new leaders is that mentees will thrive in their role for many years to come. Mentors should provide a non-judgmental learning environment in order to improve new leaders’ skill set, teach the best patient-centered care, and instill confidence in each mentee.

 Two Nebraska nurse leaders receive

Distinguished Nurse Leader Mentor Award 2014

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, received the award during the Nebraska Action Coalition’s 40 Under 40 celebration on Sept. 18, 2014 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.

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.
