The NLN Center of Excellence (COE) in Nursing Education designation is designed for schools of nursing and health care organizations that have achieved a level of excellence in a specific area. Through public recognition and distinction, the program acknowledges the outstanding innovations, commitment, and sustainability of excellence these organizations convey.

The first designations were awarded to schools of nursing in 2004 and currently thirty-five schools proudly display the COE designation. The first designations for health care organizations were awarded to three institutions in 2012. Read stories about the COE journey by clicking on the titles below:
