Sharpe receives NCNA Mentorship in Nursing Award

Congratulations to Dr. Leslie Sharpe who was honored at the 2022 Annual North Carolina Nursing Association Convention with the 2022 Mentorship in Nursing Award.

The NCNA recognized Dr. Sharpe’s leadership in education and practice by supporting students and their careers:

“The Mentorship in Nursing Award for 2022 goes to NCNA member Leslie Sharpe, from Cary. She has been a driving force in advancing the role of the Nurse Practitioner in North Carolina for more than two decades. As a faculty member at the UNC Chapel Hill School of Nursing, she helps shape the career paths of future NPs and has used that opportunity to instill pride in the profession, an appreciation for legislative advocacy, and the importance of joining professional organizations like NCNA…Dr. Sharpe leads by example, showing students and colleagues alike how the NP role can push boundaries – and she does it all with a spirit of mentorship that few possess.”
