Nursing Professor Earns Multiple Awards and Honors

Dr. Alison Colbert, assistant professor and chair of the graduate nursing program at Duquesne University, has been selected to participate in the Leadership for Academic Nursing Program, a fellowship of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN).

This AACN fellowship is designed to develop leadership skills among nursing school faculty members who are new or emerging administrators, preparing them for positions as deans or directors of academic nursing units.

In addition, Colbert and two Duquesne School of Nursing colleagues received the 2013 Starfish Award from Cribs for Kids for their Safe & Sound Safe Sleep Education Project.

Colbert also received the 2013 Community Nursing Leader Award from the District 6 Pennsylvania Nurses Association.

A resident of Park Place, Colbert's research areas include community health, incarcerated adults, health literacy, and health promotion and care among vulnerable populations. She first joined Duquesne's School of Nursing in 2006.
