School of Nursing Designated a 2020 NLN Center of Excellence
The Duquesne University School of Nursing has been designated as a 2020 NLN Center of ExcellenceTM by the National League for Nursing (NLN) for its focus on enhancing student learning and professional development.
The School of Nursing is one among 17 nursing programs from across the country to earn the designation this year. Nursing programs are chosen based on demonstrated excellence in faculty development, nursing education research, or student learning and professional development. The School of Nursing was previously recognized as an NLN Center of Excellence in 2008, 2011 and 2015.
"Duquesne University School of Nursing is extremely proud to be named an NLN Center of Excellence for the fourth consecutive time," said School of Nursing Dean Dr. Mary Ellen Glasgow. "The faculty and students have worked collaboratively to increase academic standards and national rankings, develop creative pedagogies and disseminate research findings while simultaneously developing new relevant academic programs and increasing enrollment. This designation is a testament to their innovation and diligence."
All 2020 designees will be formally recognized during the Honors Convocation at the 2020 NLN Education Summit, which is taking place virtually in September.
