School of Nursing names teaching scholars
Three faculty members from the School of Nursing have been named as Dean's Teaching Scholars. They are: Janis Rice, clinical instructor in the department of acute nursing care, Adrianne Linton, associate professor in the department of chronic nursing care, and Margaret Cole Marshall, clinical assistant professor in the department of family nursing care. Rice was honored for her research titled, "Using Dimensional Analysis to Improve Dosage Calculation Ability of Critical Care Nurses." Linton was honored for her research titled, "Enhancement of Faculty Teaching Skills." Marshall was honored for her research titled, "The Use and Evaluation of Mandala as an Innovative Teaching Tool in Psychiatric Mental Health."
The purpose of the Dean's Teaching Scholars Program is to facilitate the development of program or educational research proposals by School of Nursing faculty, and to encourage research that is focused on the evaluation of teaching strategies. Each Dean's Teaching Scholar receives a $2,000 award to support their programs of scholarship.
The honor is bestowed yearly upon one faculty member from each department in the School of Nursing. The scholar's program is open to all full-time nursing faculty members who have been teaching for at least one year.
