SOUTH ORANGE, NJ — Seton Hall University’s College of Nursing was recognized as a winner of the inaugural Assessment and Impact Award for Nursing Education by Skyfactor Benchworks, a Macmillan Learning company that provides research-based program assessments and benchmarking for a variety of programs.
Dean Marie Foley accepted the award on the college’s behalf at the 2019 American Association of Colleges of Nursing Academic Nursing Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C.
“Our undergraduate faculty, led by Dr. Judith Lucas, our associate dean of undergraduate programs and assessment, are dedicated to improving our curricula and, likewise, student retention and outcomes based on relevant data,” Foley said. “Skyfactor contributes to our success in making appropriate data-driven changes.”
The Assessment and Impact Award for Nursing Education was created to highlight schools of nursing that are successfully using data to improve their programs, which in turn helps to retain students and develop more practice-ready nursing professionals.
