ATC Nursing Instructors Receive CNE Certification

Aiken Technical College’s nursing department recently concluded its Nursing Education Project which aimed to increase the number of its nursing faculty who are certified nurse educators, create a common language related to the pedagogy of teaching nursing, and to provide the nursing faculty an opportunity to complete the project as a cohort.

As part of this project, the faculty sought to become certified nurse educators through the National League for Nursing with funding support from The Promise of Nursing for South Carolina’s Nursing School Grant Program, administered by the Foundation of the National Student Nurses’ Association.

The certification identifies nursing education as a specialty area of practice for the faculty members and demonstrates that the highest standards of excellence are being met.

All full-time nursing faculty participated and part-time adjunct faculty meeting eligibility requirements were also invited to participate.

In preparation for the certified nurse educator exam, faculty members engaged in Socratic dialogue to enhance their individual learning as well as the learning and teaching environment of the nursing programs; participated in a certified nurse educator preparation course; and held instructional content modules led by participating faculty.

More than 80 percent of the nursing faculty are now certified nurse educators. The initial certification is valid for five years. Faculty will be responsible for maintaining their certification based on current requirements of the National League of Nursing.
