Nursing Education National League for Nursing - Excellence Initiatives

In September 2003, the NLN Board of Governors approved the NLN Centers of Excellence (COE) in Nursing Education Program as a way to recognize schools of nursing that have achieved a level of excellence in one of three areas: Creating Environments that Enhance Student Learning and Professional Development, Creating Environments that Promote the Pedagogical Expertise of Faculty, and Creating Environments that Advance the Science of Nursing Education.

The first designations were awarded in 2004 and currently seventeen schools proudly display the COE designation. To view one school’s journey to become a Center of Excellence click here.

Detailed information about the program, including goals, eligibility, evaluation criteria, timeline and fees is included in the NLN Centers of Excellence in Nursing Education handbook.
