History of the Awards

In 1986, the National Flight Nurses Association* (NFNA) Board of Directors sought some means to recognize exceptional leaders in the profession of flight nursing.  Determining that leadership skills and journalistic communication were two important factors in advancing the profession, awards were developed to acknowledge outstanding capabilities in these areas.

The Katz-Mason and Jordan Awards were first presented to the persons they were named after at the 1986 NFNA Conference held in Washington, DC.  Marcia Katz and Jean Mason were the two persons most instrumental in the organization of NFNA and provided exceptional leadership for the Association during its earliest years. 

John Jordan developed the edited Flight Nurses News, the first newsletter type communication of NFNA.  Flight Nurse News evolved into the Journal of Aeromedical Healthcare, which later became the AeroMedical Journal.
