HAMMOND – Staci T. Anderson, assistant professor of nursing at Southeastern Louisiana University, has been appointed by the National League of Nursing to serve as an NLN Ambassador.
In her position, she will keep faculty and the university administration informed abut NLN initiatives, grant opportunities, conferences, publications and other benefits available to NLN members.
“This selective program makes it easy for nursing faculty and nursing programs to understand what the NLN has to offer to enhance professional development and status,” said Beverly Malone, chief executive officer of the New York-based 28,000-member organization.
Ambassadors, she said, also communicate to NLN professional staff and board on issues and challenges that are of greatest concern to nurse educators in the field in order to maximize effectiveness of programming and services.
“The Ambassadors are, in effect, the NLN’s ‘eyes and ears’ on campus,” she added.
A nurse for 14 years, Anderson has been a member on the Southeastern faculty for nine years and is based at the university’s nursing center in Baton Rouge. She holds a doctorate in nursing and is a certified nurse educator. She is a member of the American Nurses Association, the Louisiana State Nurses Association, Baton Rouge District Nurses Association and the Rho Zeta Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International nursing honor society.
The NLN is the premier organization for nurse faculty and leaders in nursing education offering faculty development, networking opportunities, testing and assessment, research grants and public policy initiatives.
