USF College of Nursing’s Selena Thomason awarded Culture Coin
Selena Thomason, an academic services administrator at the USF Health College of Nursing, was awarded a Culture Coin for having a positive team approach.
College of Nursing Dean Usha Menon, PhD, RN, FAAN, presented Thomason with the Culture Coin and recognized her as a Culture Champion with USF Health during a ceremony on March 8.
Tracey Taylor, senior associate dean of academic affairs and educational innovation, recommended Thomason for the honor.
“Quiet and unassuming, Ms. Thomason does not draw attention to her work, however, that work is the lynchpin of the success of the nurse practitioner clinical placements. Over the past year, I have observed Ms. Thomason work tirelessly to schedule students for unique opportunities for COVID relief and pivot all processes. Ms. Thomason routinely performs above and beyond traditional weekday hours to answer questions from students, faculty, and community stakeholders as well as perform last-minute placements and changes. Ms. Thomason’s work ethic and College of Nursing-centered focus serve as an example of a culture of excellence,” she wrote.
Faculty and staff who exemplify the values of USF Health are awarded a Culture Coin for their outstanding dedication and commitment to upholding the mission of USF Health.
