The University of Delaware School of Nursing was among 16 programs nationwide recognized as a Center of Excellence by the National League for Nursing (NLN). The award recognizes nursing schools for their ability to demonstrate in a measurable way sustained excellence in faculty development, nursing education research, student learning and professional development. UD joins the Georgetown University School of Nursing and Health Sciences, the Ohio State University, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, Clemson University and others in the recognition.
UD’s School of Nursing was recognized for enhancing student learning and professional development. Faculty accepted the award on Friday at the NLN Education Summit in Chicago, Ill.
“Centers of Excellence help raise the bar for all nursing programs by role modeling visionary leadership and environments of inclusive excellence that nurture the next generation of a strong and diverse nursing workforce to advance the health of the nation and the global community,” NLN CEO Beverly Malone, PhD, RN, FAAN, noted.
