Janice Hoffman, RN, PhD, assistant professor and assistant dean for the BSN program at the University of Maryland School of Nursing in Baltimore, is one of 28 honorees who will be inducted as Academy of Nursing Education Fellows at the National League for Nursings annual Education Summit, to be held in September in Washington, D.C.
As a newly named fellow, Hoffman has been lauded for her contributions to the nursing education community in the areas of leadership and innovative teaching and learning strategies, according to a news release. Hoffmans scholarly activities include presentations and consultations to schools of nursing related to curriculum development, creative teaching strategies, test construction and analysis and teaching and evaluation in clinical settings regionally, nationally and internationally.
“I am both thrilled and humbled to have been selected as an Academy of Nursing Education Fellow by the National League for Nursing,” Hoffman said in the release. “It is an honor to be recognized for my contributions to nursing education, as teaching and working with students are my true passions.”
The NLN established the Academy of Nursing Education in 2007.
“This award substantiates what our faculty and students already knew about Dr. Hoffmans contributions to the School of Nursing — she is an innovator,” UMSON Dean Jane M. Kirschling, RN, PhD, FAAN, said in the release. “Her teaching style is truly appreciated at the School of Nursing, and we are pleased that her efforts are being recognized on a national level. She has been an ambassador for our school and a resource for new nurse educators and those aspiring to become nurse educators.”
