The National League for Nursing (NLN) recently re-designated the Kent State University College of Nursing a Center of Excellence for 2017-2022. Kent State’s use of leading-edge technology which allows nursing students to learn and practice the necessary skills to become future nurse scientists, educators, and practitioners has helped maintain the university’s reputation of academic excellence.
Kent State’s College of Nursing was initially designated a Center of Excellence in 2013 and is one of 16 organizations to achieve the designation in 2017. A leader in nursing education, Kent State’s Nursing program is dedicated to meeting the needs of the community and is an active champion for diversity in nursing education. Nursing faculty are actively engaged in pioneering research and teaching students how to face a rapidly changing and complex healthcare system.
“We have a strong commitment and vision to inspire nurses at all levels, and of all genders, ethnicities, races and social statuses, to advance their education. We provide multiple academic pathways of success, such as LPN to BSN, RN; RN to BSN; and the accelerated BSN program. Our graduate programs offer opportunities for nurses to prepare as nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, educators and administrators, while our doctoral programs prepare nurses to challenge and change the healthcare landscape through practice and research.”
The Kent State nursing community is honored by the NLN designation and proud of the university’s 50 years of providing nursing education. To learn more about the NLN’s decision to re-designate Kent State as a Center of Excellence, visit here.
