Honors for school nursing faculty
Two faculty members who teach in the UIC Nursing School Nurse Certificate Program recently received high honors.
The program’s director, Robin Shannon, DNP ‘17, MS ’09, RN, NCSN, PHNA-BC, was inducted as a Fellow in the National Academy of School Nurses. Being named fellow is the most prestigious recognition that members can receive from the association and is considered a symbol of superior achievement in the school nursing profession and exceptional contribution to the association.
Eileen Moss, MS ’11, RN, PEL-CSN, NCSN, an adjunct faculty member, received the 2020 National Certified School Nurse of the Year award from the National Board for Certification of School Nurses. The award honors a national certified school nurse who has promoted certification as well as worked to enhance general competency in school nursing. Moss was recognized virtually last month.
