South Nassau’s Mary Pearson Award is presented annually to an individual for extraordinary effort and individual contributions that significantly advance South Nassau’s commitment to compassionate care and standard setting healthcare services. Since joining South Nassau in 1977, Ms. Mooney has been the architect of numerous initiatives and strategies that have made South Nassau nurses a paragon in providing compassionate, patient-centered bedside care and established an environment that supports the professional development of its nursing staff.
Under Ms. Mooney’s leadership, South Nassau has established many unique staff positions that have enhanced the standard-setting patient care that it provides. In 1991, Ms. Mooney spearheaded the launching of South Nassau’s eight-week, 300-hour clinical nurse intern program that has served as the springboard to successful careers for more than 500 nursing candidates. Because of Ms. Mooney’s efforts, the hospital also offers OR Training and ED Fellowship programs as well as a host of competency-based and evidence-based programs for all levels of staff to promote continuous learning and development.
As a result of Ms. Mooney’s vision and acumen, South Nassau has been in the vanguard of nurse recruitment and retention. She developed a plan that focused on recruiting beyond the borders of the U.S. to parts of the world rich in nursing talent that had assimilated the education and training of U.S. nurses. Talent retention initiatives implemented by Ms. Mooney at South Nassau include Retention Rounds, Certification Pay, and R.N. Preceptor Pay, Annual Nursing Excellence Award Ceremony, Annual Nurses Day Celebration, and the establishment of a Nursing Honors Council which celebrates staff achievements and nominates applicable nurses for awards.
