The three award categories for 2018 are:


The ANA-NY Mentorship Award recognizes a nurse who has been an exemplary mentor to less experienced nurses (novices) in any domain of nursing – education, research, practice improvement, clinical practice, and/or health policy. The recipient of this award will have provided professional guidance and support to the mentees over a protracted time period during the evolution of their careers in an effort to help the mentees reach their professional, mutually agreed upon goals.


  • Demonstrated activity as a mentor through:

    • Acknowledgement of mentor in published works (mentor not author) or awards supported by mentor (mentor not part of award).
  • Protracted relationship between mentor and mentee (i.e., going beyond a work relationship). Examples: If a faculty member, working with a student beyond graduation from a program. If in a clinical role, meeting and working with mentee beyond work hours.
