UNCG Nursing deemed “Center of Excellence” again and again

Photo of School of Nursing building.The UNCG School of Nursing has been selected for the fourth consecutive time by the National League for Nursing (NLN) as a Center of Excellence in recognition of its sustained efforts in “Creating Environments That Promote the Pedagogical Expertise of Faculty.” This designation runs from 2016-2021, and will be formally awarded at the NLN Summit in Orlando, Florida, on Sept. 21, 2016.

Only 10 schools in the country have been designated as Centers of Excellence more than twice; the UNCG School of Nursing first received designation in 2005. The NLN “offers the Centers of Excellence program as a way to recognize schools that have demonstrated a commitment to excellence and invested resources over a sustained period of time to distinguish themselves in a specific area related to nursing education.”
