The Nurse Educator Certification program is offered by the National League for Nursing. This program, in existence since 2005, was designed to serve as a mark of professionalism, establish nursing education as a specialty area of practice and create a means for faculty to demonstrate their expertise in this role. Certification as a nurse educator communicates to students, peers and the academic and health care communities that the highest standards of excellence are being met and that the individual who holds such distinction is a leader and a role model.
At the 10th anniversary mark of the CNE program, there were more than 5,400 nurse faculty in the United States who had earned that credential. The Duke University School of Nursing is proud that the following faculty and staff hold this certification, which acknowledges their specialized knowledge, skills and abilities as teachers and their commitment to excellence in nursing education and to advancing the science of nursing education.
