Under 40 Award

Celebrating the places we have been and the places you will go!
Join us in 2024 and see how we will help you get there!
Dear NBNA Membership,
Plans are well underway for NBNA's 52nd Annual Institute and Conference Celebration.  Over the coming months you will receive information about several exciting events that the local chapter and the various conference committees are planning.
As with all anniversary celebrations, we will honor our past, and celebrate our future. The Under 40 Award will honor and celebrate NBNA members who are 40 years old and under who have shown strong leadership and demonstrated excellence and innovation in their practice setting, in their NBNA chapters and in the communities they serve.   These are the emerging leaders who will carry the vision and the mission of our Founders into the future. 

These young leaders are the "way forward" for our communities and our organization.

These young leaders are the "Future of Nursing"!
I look forward to celebrating with you!

Dr. Eric J. Williams
Conference Co-Chair
