The 2017 Estelle Osborne Recognition Award
The Nurse Practitioner journal is pleased to announce that our editor-in-chief, Jamesetta A. Newland, PhD, FNP-BC, FAANP, DPANP, was the recipient of the 2017 Estelle Osborne Recognition Award presented by the New York University Rory Meyers College of Nursing. Dr. Newland, who is a faculty member at NYU, was honored at an annual event that celebrates Osborne, a black nurse leader who was a pioneer in organizational administration and the first black professor in what is now the NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing.
Osborne was the first black nurse in the U.S. to obtain a master's degree and worked tirelessly to eliminate discrimination in the professional nursing organizations in this country and in society as a whole. The Estelle Osborne award honors a distinguished alumni or faculty member whose professional career embodies the true spirit of Osborne's legacy. Our hearty congratulations go out to Dr. Newland on this incredible achievement!
