FORM IMMEDIATE RELEASE

October 3, 2007 — New York, NY — The National League for Nursing has announced an expansion of its educational programming services and faculty development resources to its membership with the creation of the NLN Speaker/Consultant Bureau. The bureau will be officially launched at the organizations annual Education Summit taking next week.

"Our goal is to link the best nurse educators in the field with schools and faculty interested in fostering professional development and raising their standards of excellence in teaching, research, student mentoring/advising, and any other area that impacts the preparation of our graduates," said Dr. Beverly Malone, the NLNs CEO, in describing the rationale for this new service. "We often receive requests for speakers, presenters, and consultants on topics essential to support and promote professional excellence, and now we can be responsive to these," she added.

With its announcement at the four-day gathering that each year attracts a significant percentage of the NLNs national membership, NLN leadership hopes to influence many more nurse educators who are experienced presenters to take advantage of the opportunity to be part of this exciting initiative.
