BANGOR – Alfreda Mouland, Acadia Hospital geriatric nurse practitioner, has received the Maine Nurse Practitioner of the Year Award from the Maine Nurse Practitioner Association.
In her tenure at Acadia, Mouland has promoted the role of nurse practitioners in attending to the unmet health needs of people with mental illness or substance abuse. She has mentored several newly graduated nurse practitioners.

Mouland has left her mark on the status of advanced practice nursing in Maine through her early contribution in crafting landmark legislation enacted in 1995.
