Jonas Recommendations • Implement Engagement Package for Regional Nurse Leaders across the State of Nebraska. Explains the basics (IOM report, the NAC, and why leadership is vital) • January is Mentorship Month • Nursing Retreats • Organizational Use • Nursing Student Orientation • Identify 40 under 40 recipients current mentee-mentor relationships within their organization or community
Jonas Recommendations • Focus on increasing 40 under 40 award receipts in South, North and West regions. Nursing leadership has a potential for great impact in these areas. • Build upon Best Practices that exist in each region • Rural Regional Liaison to work closely with NAC to engage through communication with future nursing leaders
