Dr. Charlotte Ward and Dr. Linda MoranAfter meeting strict eligibility criteria and successfully completing a rigorous certification examination developed and administered by the National League for Nursing, two College of the Ozarks professors, Dr. Charlotte Ward and Dr. Linda Moran, passed the Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) exam.

“We are very pleased that Dr. Ward and Dr. Moran have demonstrated this standard in distinguished nursing education,” said Dr. Janice Williams, College of the Ozarks Nursing Program Director. Williams describes the completion as a “mark of excellence.”

For nursing educators, a CNE demonstrates expertise and communicates to students, peers and the academic and health care communities that the highest standards are being met.

Goals of the CNE certification include, distinguishing academic nursing education as a specialty area of practice and an advanced practice role within professional nursing and recognizing the academic nurse educator’s specialized knowledge, skills, abilities and an advanced practice role within professional nursing.

College of the Ozarks launched its Bachelor of Science Nursing Program in 2007. Currently, eight full-time faculty members teach in the program.
