Tanika Vivien named NLN ambassador
University of South Florida College of Nursing’s Tanika L. Vivien, MS, RN, CHES, Faculty Instructor & Team Coordinator, has been named as National League for Nursing (NLN) ambassador.
Vivien is humbled by this recognition, and looks forward to keeping the College of Nursing connected to NLN.
“My objective is to provide our college with opportunities to participate in NLN initiatives,” Vivien said. “This accomplishment will positively affect our college by encouraging faculty development of nursing education.”
As a USF Nursing alumnus, Vivien said the acknowledgment has a more special meaning. In 2008, she completed the College’s master’s program nursing education concentration.
The NLN ambassador’s role is to help promote excellence in the nursing education community, and keep college and faculty informed of NLN programs. The ambassador also discovers ways for the nursing community to stay involved in NLN education focused initiatives.
NLN aims to help stimulate excellence in nursing education, and is the preferred membership organization for nurse faculty and leaders, according to the National League for Nursing’s web site. The NLN offers faculty development programs, networking opportunities, testing and assessment, nursing research grants, and public policy initiatives for institutional members.
