NLN announces 2015 education fellows

Twenty-two nurse educators will be inducted into the Academy of Nursing Education this fall, the National League for Nursing announced in a news release. In addition, seven nurse educators were named honorary fellows, recognizing retired nurse educators or those in affiliated professions or public service who have made significant contributions to nursing education. The induction ceremony will take place at the NLN Banquet Oct. 2 during the 2015 Education Summit in Las Vegas.

The Academy of Nursing Education Review Panel reviews applications and recommends fellowship candidates to the NLN Board of Governors, the oversight body for the academy. Evaluations take into account applicants’ contributions to innovative teaching and learning strategies; nursing education research; faculty development activities; academic leadership; promotion of public policy that advances nursing education; and/or collaborative educational, practice, or community partnerships.

“Fellows support the mission and core values of the NLN and assist in the work required to prepare graduates from all types of nursing programs,” NLN CEO Beverly Malone, PhD, RN, FAAN, said in the release. “They serve as mentors and resources for new educators and those in clinical practice who hope to someday enter the ranks of nurse faculty.”
