National League for Nursing - Excellence Roles
Roles and Responsibilities
A printer-friendly version Roles
and Responsibilities of the consultant and applicant can be found on pages 12-15
of the handbook.
Critical to the success of the Centers of Excellence in Nursing
Education program are the consultants who make the onsite visit to those seeking
designation as an NLN Center of Excellence, the applicant itself, and the COE
These guidelines were developed to clearly define the roles,
responsibilities, and expectations of the consultant and the
applicant. It is particularly critical to distinguish the Centers
of Excellence program from accreditation, since these programs are very different
from each other. Thus, these guidelines clearly articulate what the Centers
of Excellence consultant and applicants are and are not expected to do prior
to, during, and after the onsite visit.
Any questions about the roles and responsibilities of anyone involved in the
Centers of Excellence process should be directed to Tish Hess, NLN’s director,
membership and excellence initiatives, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
