University of Wyoming (UW) nursing professor Holly Miller was recently awarded the UW College of Health Sciences (CHS) Outstanding Career Achievement Award. Miller is the current director of the Basic BSN and Accelerated BRAND nursing programs at the UW Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing.
After 30 years experience in nursing education, all at UW, Miller received her award at the CHS recognition event in April and will retire from teaching this month. Miller began her employment in the UW School of Nursing in 1988 and eventually became director of the Basic BSN and BRAND programs and the Clinical Simulation Center coordinator.
During her career at UW, Miller was instrumental in designing and setting up the state-of-the-art simulation center when the school moved to its present location in 2005. She has also used her knowledge of nursing education and simulation to recruit several classes of students over the years.
Most recently, Miller has led her undergraduate teaching colleagues in the development of coursework for the new statewide curriculum, Revolutionizing Nursing Education in Wyoming (ReNEW) program. She continues to support implementation of the new curriculum.
Miller is a member of the Wyoming Nurses Association, American Nurses Association, and the local chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society. To learn more about her career as a nursing educator at the University of Wyoming, visit here.
