Dean Pamela Jeffries Accepts NLN Award
September 29, 2016
Dean Pamela Jeffries accepted the NLN Mary Adelaide Nutting Award for Outstanding Leadership in Nursing Education in Orlando, Florida, late last week.
The Mary Adelaide Nutting Award, named for the world’s first professor of nursing, is reserved for those leaders in nursing education who also publish scholarly works that advance nursing education knowledge.
"I was nominated for this award by GW SON faculty, which is what makes it so meaningful,” Dean Jeffries said. “It’s a great honor to have those whom I work with every day believe in me and the work that we do. Being recognized as a leader in nursing education by a national organization is a wonderful accolade — one that I will always cherish."
Dean Jeffries led early NLN research studies on the use of simulation in nursing education. This would later culminate in the NLN publishing the Jeffries Simulation Theory, which synthesizes extensive research, literature review and practice to create a guide for best practices for advancing nursing education.
