Former Program Director Named ‘Fellow’ of Nursing Academy

Former Program Director Named ‘Fellow’ of Nursing Academy

Michelle L. Foley, former director of the joint nursing program of MCC and Raritan Bay Medical Center, has been inducted into the National League for Nursing’s Academy of Nursing Education, with the credential of “Fellow.” She joins the academy’s 117 fellows representing nursing schools and programs throughout the United States.

Professor Foley retired at the end of June but will continue to stay active in the profession.

Fellows provide visionary leadership in nursing education and in the Academy of Nursing Education and support the vision of the NLN to promote standards of excellence in nursing education that will increase the number of graduates from all types of nursing programs. Fellows serve as important role models and resources for new educators and for those who aspire to become nurse educators.

The fellowships were awarded by the NLN Board of Governors, the oversight body of the Academy of Nursing Education. The induction of new fellows and a meeting of fellows in the Academy of Nursing Education will be held in conjunction with the NLN’s annual Education Summit in Anaheim, CA in September.

As a newly named fellow, Professor Foley has been lauded for her innovative teaching and learning strategies, nursing education research, faculty development, academic leadership, and promotion of public policy that advances nursing education.
