Anna Mackevicius is a familiar face to nursing in Nebraska, serving as NNA President from 2016 – 2018 and in various other leadership roles over many years. We are thrilled to bring Anna’s leadership experience, strong communication skills and expert project management to the Board. Her “inside perspective” on MSD/NNA/MIG operations will be “helpful as the Nebraska Nurses Foundation considers future partnerships and collaborative efforts.” Her employment involves the management of multi-million-dollar contracts with federal agencies including the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid and the Veterans Affairs. As a Project Management Professional, she handles tasks and projects – both ongoing and one-time occurrences – with consideration of time, resources, constraints, and scope. This perspective will be helpful as NNF pursues available grants to promote its mission, and to support NNA/NNF collaboration to create stable, relevant, and sustainable organizations. Anna has agreed to accept the Vice President role for the 2020 Board.
