Professor of Adult Health Dorothy Jones and Professor Emeritus Marjory Gordon both received the Mentor's Award, the highest honor presented by the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA International). The award is dedicated to a NANDA International member who has shown a commitment to mentoring other nurses in the pursuit of their careers, in the advancement of standardized nursing language, and in the leadership of the NANDA International organization. NANDA International Executive Director and Connell School alum T. Heather Herdman (MS'91, PhD'95) presented Dr. Jones and Dr. Gordon with the award, noting that she considers herself lucky to count both women as her own mentors.
