The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) College of Nursing was recently named a 2018 Center of Excellence in Nursing Education by the National League for Nursing (NLN). This distinction is in recognition of the university’s efforts to promote pedagogical expertise in its nursing faculty.
Dr. Marsha Howell Adams, dean of the UAH College of Nursing, tells UAH.edu, “Our students have been the most important focus in the transformation of our programs. From advising doctoral students to improving support for freshmen to transforming our curriculum, the college has never lost sight of its goal: caring for our students, supporting our students, and producing strong, competent, innovative nursing leaders.”
The UAH College of Nursing will be formally recognized on September 14, during the 2018 NLN Education Summit, an annual event for nurse faculty, deans, administrators, and professionals from a variety of health organizations.
The NLN’s Center of Excellence in Nursing Education program was started in 2004 and invites nursing schools to apply annually based on their ability to demonstrate sustained excellence in faculty development, nursing education research, and student learning and professional development.
