Shelly Moore, assistant professor of nursing in Clarion University's School of Nursing and Allied Health, located at Clarion University-Venango Campus, recently presented at the National League for Nursing (NLN) Summit in Las Vegas, Nev. The title of this year's NLN's Summit was "Shaping History, Reforming Health Care: The Power of Nursing Education."
Ms. Moore is completing coursework for a Ph.D. and joined with several others in her doctoral program to present "Supporting and Retaining Returning Adult Students," a poster that focused on the complexity of issues and unique challenges encountered by adult students and the best practice recommendations for addressing the issue in education. Ms. Moore serves as the NLN Ambassador for the university.
The National League for Nursing is the preferred membership organization for nurse faculty and leaders in nursing education. Attendance at the annual summit provides nurse educators an opportunity to participate in professional development at the national level. Speakers address key nursing and nursing education issues, including public policy initiatives, curriculum development, teaching strategies, and evaluation techniques employed in nursing education. Participants also have an opportunity to network with other nursing faculty and to learn about nursing education research.
