Nursing Education National League for Nursing - Excellence Initiatives

One of the goals of the National League for Nursing is to lead in setting standards that advance excellence and innovation in nursing education. Toward this end, the Board of Governors, NLN members, and staff have collaborated to develop a number of initiatives that relate to excellence and innovation. Among the material you will find on the NLN's website related to excellence and innovation in nursing education are the following:

Academy of Nursing Education
a program to foster excellence in nursing education by recognizing and capitalizing on the wisdom of outstanding individuals in and outside the profession who have contributed to nursing education in sustained and significant ways.

Centers of Excellence Program  
a program designed to recognize schools of nursing and health care organizations that have achieved a demonstrated level of excellence.

Student “Excellence Paper” Competition  
an initiative designed to challenge students enrolled in Center of Excellence schools to reflect on the meaning of excellence and what it means to be a student in a school that has been recognized for excellence

Certified Nurse Educator  
Certification in any field is a mark of professionalism. For academic nurse educators, it establishes nursing education as a specialty area of practice and creates a means for faculty to demonstrate their expertise in this role.
