The Voice of Nursing Education

Janet M. Phillips Nice


Janet M. Phillips Nice, PhD, RN, ANEF


I would be delighted to serve on the Board of Governors for the National League for Nursing as a Governor-at-large. I will bring energy and enthusiasm in facing today’s health care challenges through my experience in NLN leadership activities, having dedicated my professional work to promoting excellence in nursing education. As a Governor-at-large, I will continue to provide national and international leadership in curriculum innovations to prepare nurse graduates for leadership in today’s complex health care system. My research and scholarship in systems thinking, innovations in systems-based practice, interprofessional education, and Quality and Safety Education for Nurses, will set the stage for the needed knowledge and leadership for this esteemed position. Election to the Board of Governors will allow me the opportunity to represent, support and serve the interests of all educators in promoting excellence in nursing education.
