Purdue Univesity NorthwestHAMMOND — Purdue University Northwest’s College of Nursing was named one of 16 “Centers of Excellence” by the National League for Nursing.

The recognition is awarded to nursing programs that demonstrate sustained excellence in faculty development, nursing education research, and in student learning and professional development.

This is the second time the college received the designation. PNW was previously named a center of excellence in 2014.

PNW will be formally recognized for its achievement during the 2018 NLN Education Summit on Sept. 14 in Chicago.

“Our faculty, staff and students earned this recognition together,” said PNW’s College of Nursing Dean Lisa Hopp. “Our excellence is present in our everyday teaching, practice, scholarship and service to our communities.”

Hopp said PNW received its second NLN recognition because of initiatives including Sojourner Truth House, where a family nurse practitioner faculty brings primary care to the Region’s most vulnerable citizens. She also cited students’ capstone projects and the faculty’s ability to make a difference in students’ lives.

Throughout the four-year designation period, PNW’s nursing faculty and administrators will serve as advisors and role models to other institutions. Their expertise will raise the levels of achievement for various nursing communities.
