National Nursing League Names Hunter School of Nursing a “Center of Excellence”
Hunter’s School of Nursing has just been awarded one of the most prestigious honors in its field — a certificate from the National League of Nursing designating the school a “2010-2013 Center of Excellence in Nursing Education.”
The certificate, presented on October 1 in Las Vegas during the League’s annual Education Summit, cites the Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing for its “sustained achievements in creating environments that enhance student learning and professional development.”
The full citation goes on to say that innovative, evidence-based teaching methods are a “key feature” of the Hunter-Bellevue curriculum, adding that the school’s faculty has “fully integrated these pedagogies, along with technological learning strategies, across all programs to enhance student learning and ensure student success.” The award also points to the nursing school’s success in facilitating “deep learning”; strengthening students’ abilities to pursue independent interests; broadening students’ understanding of community needs; and creating partnerships “on the academic, clinical, and community levels.”
The award was accepted on behalf of the nursing school by Professor Joyce P. Griffin-Sobel, Hunter-Bellevue’s assistant dean for curriculum and technology and director of undergraduate programs.
