Egan School: A Center of Excellence

Egan School: A Center of Excellence

This summer, the National League for Nursing (NLN) announced that the Egan School was selected to be a NLN Center of Excellence for the second time.

It is an exciting time for the Marion Peckham Egan School of Nursing and Health Studies. This summer, the National League for Nursing (NLN) announced that the Egan School was selected to be a NLN Center of Excellence for the second time. The Egan School will be formally designated during the Honors Convocation at the late-September 2022 NLN Education Summit in Las Vegas, Nevada.

About the designation, Dr. Meredith Kazer, dean of the Egan School, beamed with pride and gratitude. “I am beyond grateful for our Egan faculty and staff whose expertise and hard work earned this designation,” she said, “and grateful to our nursing students who embrace our Fairfield education and use it to make the world a better place.”

Selection to become a Center of Excellence is based on the school’s sustained excellence in faculty development, nursing education research, student learning, and professional development.

The Egan School was specifically selected for its sustained efforts in “creating environments that promote the pedagogical expertise of faculty.” Egan’s programs use the latest in medical equipment and small classroom settings to provide a practical and engaging education for students. This is achieved while offering students a strong liberal arts education paired with the theory-based knowledge and skills that will allow them to work in the expanding fields of nursing and health studies. Students grow both personally and professionally to become committed and compassionate nurses, capable of providing professional care to people in any setting.
