NLN Introduces NLN Connect, an Exclusive Members-Only Online Community

New Forum in Nursing Education Offers Direct Engagement Across the Globe

Washington, DC — The National League for Nursing has just made membership more valuable for nurse educators worldwide with the introduction of NLN Connect. This exclusive new online members-only community now offers a forum to directly engage with one another for the nearly 45,000 nurse educators and scholars who belong to the League. 

This new online community, which will be accessible through personal membership accounts, makes it easy for members to:

  • Share ideas, insights, best academic practices, scholarly studies, and other resources
  • Participate in live and virtual discussions with peers and industry leaders to expand awareness and knowledge
  • Explore opportunities to build or join networks dedicated to specialized interests, such as simulation or technology in nursing education
NLN Chair Kathleen Poindexter, PhD, RN, CNE, ANEF, interim associate dean of academic affairs at Michigan State University in Lansing said, “NLN Connect is the National League for Nursing’s latest initiative to provide cutting-edge resources and information to our members. Facilitating direct engagement on a host of timely issues and challenges in nursing education will undoubtedly promote excellence in the preparation of a diverse nursing workforce to deliver outstanding, culturally competent care in today’s dynamic, sophisticated health care environment.”

NLN President and CEO Beverly Malone, PhD, RN, FAAN said, “The National League for Nursing is once again taking a pioneering approach to member engagement and professional development. NLN Connect is designed to meet the needs of nurse educators across the spectrum of higher education and serving in clinical education roles throughout health and hospital institutions. Logging on any time of day or night will afford our members with the opportunity to engage in dialogue in real time to gain wisdom and insight from peers and mentors, or to share their expertise with colleagues on all levels of experience.”
