NLN Center of Excellence in Education

Widener's School of Nursing was awarded the National League for Nursing’s Center of Excellence in the category of Creating Environments that Advance the Science of Nursing Education in 2017. 

The School of Nursing faculty includes leaders in nursing education, scholarship, and civic engagement. As a leading comprehensive school of nursing, we achieve our mission by creating a learning environment where curricula are connected to societal health issues through diverse community engagement.

We lead by providing a unique professional nursing education in a challenging, scholarly, and supportive learning community. We engage our students through interactive teaching, professional role modeling, active scholarship, and experiential learning. We inspire our students to be professionals who demonstrate leadership in nursing practice, education, scholarship, and research throughout the global community.

Based upon a strong foundation of preparing leaders in nursing education with alumni serving as university presidents, deans, faculty leaders, and researchers, the Widener University School of Nursing received recognition and was awarded in the category of Creating Environments that Advance the Science of Nursing Education. This achievement is credited to the leadership of the faculty, who have demonstrated a sustained effort and passionate commitment to pedagogical research, evidence-based teaching practice, student engagement in the development of a science of nursing education, and the dissemination of these contributions.
