Valley Nurses Selected for Nursing Leadership Awards


December 18, 2013 -- The Valley Hospital is pleased to announce the selection of two of its nurses for Nursing Leadership Awards by the Organization of Nurse Executives of New Jersey (ONE NJ).  Since 1971, ONENJ has been the professional organization of choice for nursing leaders, representing nursing administration and management in all practice settings.
Beverly Karas-Irwin, Director of Professional Practice and Research at Valley, has been recognized with the 2013 Professional Recognition Award.  This award is bestowed upon a nurse who demonstrates nursing leadership through a professional achievement that has made a significant impact on nursing.  Beverly is being recognized for her work in developing the joint nursing program between The Valley Hospital and Ramapo College.  These types of partnerships between academia and practice are now a recommendation of the Institute of Medicine's in their 2010 report called, "The Future of Nursing".
Bettyann Kempin, Assistant Vice President for Medical and Surgical Services at Valley, has received the 2013 Leadership in Mentorship Award.  This award is presented to a nurse leader who demonstrates supportive leadership in mentoring nurses in the leadership role.  Bettyann was nominated by nurse manager from St. Joseph's Hospital in Paterson for recognition of the mentorship she provided to her as part of the Organization of Nurse Executives of New Jersey Mentorship Program, which Bettyann helped develop.
The awards were presented on December 6 to Beverly and Bettyann at the organization's annual awards brunch.
