ONA Awards

ONA appreciates the work of our members and nurse leaders. They are the driving force behind everything we do and everything we have achieved. We are proud to celebrate their accomplishments by presenting awards to outstanding ONA members who have shown exceptional leadership and dedication to their practice.

Susan E. King Emerging Leader in Nursing Practice Award

ONA is proud to introduce the Susan E. King Emerging Leader in Nursing Practice Award, which has been established by ONA to recognize and reward current and future nurse leaders.

This award, established in 2016, will honor nurses who are making a difference in their profession and encourage them to help others improve their practice.

“We’re proud to dedicate this award in honor of ONA’s Executive Director Susan King, who has spent her career inspiring nurses to take on leadership roles and become passionate advocates for their profession,” said ONA President Katy Cooper, BSN, RN, CCRN. “As new nurses take on leadership positions, we must continue our work to recognize and support them.”

The inaugural award will be presented at ONA’s Convention in April. The practice award includes a $1000 gift.

Recognition Awards

Regularly, at the ONA Convention, nurse leaders are recognized by the ONA Cabinet on Economic and General Welfare for their work in their bargaining units. The ONA Professional Services Department also recognizes the Professional Nursing Care Committees (PNCC) of the year.
