Expectations Of COE-Designated Schools


A printer-friendly version of this information can be found on page 16 of the handbook.

  • Applicants selected as NLN Centers of Excellence will be expected to participate in
    interviews about achievements related to each criterion,
    the impact the Center of Excellence designation had on
    recruitment and retention, contributions to nursing
    science, and other relevant outcomes.
  • COE-designated organizations are encouraged to
    continue the designation after the initial four year period.
    Those that wish to continue this distinction for an
    additional four years should review the information about Continuing Designation. There is no limit to the number of times an organizations may submit an application for continuing designation as an NLN Center of Excellence in Nursing Education, and schools may hold designation in more than one category simultaneously.
  • Throughout the four years they carry designation as Center or Excellence, awardees will be expected to be available to other organizations seeking to improve their programs.
  • Before their four-year COE designation expires, these recipients are encouraged to submit (a) an abstract for presentation at an NLN Education Summit, and (b) a manuscript for review and possible publication in the NLN's journal, Nursing Education Perspectives. Both of these submissions must describe the recipient's activities and outcomes related to the Centers of Excellence designation.
  • COE designees must be NLN members at time of application and are required to maintain accreditation and NLN membership throughout the designation cycle.
