The 2002 NLN Education Summit & Annual Meeting: Engaging Higher Education in Renewing the Nursing Profession


Engaging Higher Education in Renewing the Nursing Profession

Anaheim, California / September 19-22, 2002

During these first years of the 21st century, the American public has been increasingly cognizant of the serious shortage of nurses and the need to educate nurses for the realities of today's health care system. For the NLN, this has been a time of great challenge and great opportunity. * Never is the focus on the NLN mission, to advance quality nursing education, more intense than during our annual Education Summit, when faculty from all types of nursing education programs gather together to share information and learn from one another. In stimulating plenary sessions, participants have the opportunity to ask questions and confront issues. During concurrent sessions - in large groups and small - they concentrate on specific areas of interest and participate in workshops and symposia. In personalized small sessions, introduced this year, they have the opportunity to engage in conversation with experts and innovators in nursing education. And, most importantly, during meals, in the exhibit hall and at social functions, they learn what is new and gather with colleagues to exchange ideas. * These pages touch on some of the highlights of the Education Summit 2002. The next Summit will take place in San Antonio, Texas, September 18-21, 2003. It promises to be equally exciting.

THE SUMMIT OPENED WITH WELCOMING REMARKS by NLN CEO

Dr. Ruth Corcoran, President Dr Eileen Zungolo, and Dr Nancy Langston, chairperson of the NLN Foundation for Nursing Education.

Concerns about exit

into practice, encompassing core professional values for competence, for example, must replace entry into practice as a key issue.

Dr. Bargagliotti's address has been adapted for publication in this issue of Nursing Education Perspectives.

Dr Zungolo's remarks were published as the President's Message in the November/December 2002 issue.

WHO WILL TEACH THE NURSES OF THE FUTURE?

In May 2002, the NLN Board of Governors issued a

Position Statement on "The Preparation of Nurse Eucators," which addressed the specialized knowledge and preparation essential for practice as a nurse educator. The Statement was developed from the work of highly respected nursing education leaders who participated in the NLN Think Tank on Graduate Preparation for the Nurse Educator Role.

Four members of the Think Tank formed a panel for the Summit's second plenary session. Dr. Louise Fitzpatrick, chair, presented an historical context for the current state of nursing education. Dr. Georgie Labadie offered a statistical overview of the faculty shortage and recalled what it is like to be a new and inexperienced faculty member. Dr. Elaine Tagliareni described the challenge of identifying core competencies for faculty. And Dr. Judy Halstead discussed the implications of this work for the ongoing initiatives of the NLN Task Group on Nurse Educator Competence.

Dr. Terry Valiga, Chief Program Officer at the NLN, moderated the panel and joined the others in answering questions from the floor. …
