CNEA Nominations



Eligible nurse educators are either an active or retired individual NLN member, employed at an NLN member institution, or employed at an NLN CNEA accredited or pre-accredited program.  Nurse educators who do not meet these criteria are not eligible for placement on the NLN CNEA ballot in a nurse educator role.

Nursing practice representative must either hold a part-time or full-time active practice position.

Eligible public member representatives include those who have an interest and expertise in higher education, nursing education, program evaluation and/or accreditation.  Public members can be nurses but cannot be members of the National League for Nursing or associated with programs accredited by the NLN CNEA.


Each year, the NLN CNEA seeks nurse educators, nursing practice representatives, and public member representatives with expertise in nursing education, higher education, nursing practice, and related fields to serve on its Board of Commissioners and Nominations Committee.

There may be Board of Commissioner vacancies for nurse educator positions or nursing practice representative positions. Nurse educators representing all program types (practical/vocational, diploma (RN), associate degree, bachelor degree, master’s degree and clinical practice doctoral programs) are eligible to serve.  Terms in office are three years in duration. The NLN CNEA has set Board of Commissioners engagement expectations.

There may also be openings on the NLN CNEA Nominations Committee. Terms are two years in length; committee members are expected to participate in all scheduled teleconferences.

Please consider nominating eligible colleagues. Self-nominations are welcome.
