The director of UNC’s School of Nursing is one of 17 distinguished nursing educators in the United States selected for induction into the 10th class of fellows of the National League of Nursing’s prestigious Academy of Nursing Education.
Faye Hummel, who has taught in UNC’s program since 1986 and has directed the program since 2013, will be honored along with the other 2016 fellows during a ceremony at the NLN Honors Convocation Sept. 23 in Orlando, Fla.
In a competitive application process, potential fellowship candidates are evaluated on their contributions to innovative teaching and learning strategies; nursing education research; faculty development activities; academic leadership; promotion of public policy that advances nursing education; and collaborative educational, practice or community partnerships.
Hummel, who holds a master’s degree in community health nursing, a Ph.D. in sociology and is certified as an advanced transcultural nurse, in 2015 received UNC’s M. Lucile Harrison Award recognizing professional excellence in teaching, scholarship and service.
Her many other recognitions include the title of Professor Honorius Causa from the University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Ho Chi Minh City for her contribution to Vietnamese medical education and tutoring Vietnamese students in nursing over the past two decades.
In addition to her teaching and administrative duties at UNC, Hummel volunteers her time to co-direct the Friendship Bridge Nurses Group, a non-governmental organization that partners with Vietnamese educators and policymakers to advance the profession of nursing and improve health care in Vietnam.
Dedicated to excellence in nursing, the National League for Nursing is the premier organization for nurse faculty and leaders in nursing education. The NLN offers professional development, networking opportunities, testing services, nursing research grants, and public policy initiatives to its 40,000 individual and 1,200 institutional members. NLN members represent nursing education programs across the spectrum of higher education, and health care organizations and agencies.

Four-year institutions try to prevent community colleges from offering advanced programs
When California state Sen. Marty Block was working on a bill to allow community colleges to offer some bachelor’s degrees, a B.S. in nursing seemed like a sure bet.
Most of the four-year California State University campuses that offer a bachelor’s in nursing have to turn students away, at a time when the state’s hospitals increasingly demand that new nurses hold such degrees. But Mr. Block, a Democrat, soon got the message from four-year schools and their lobbyists: Stay off our turf.
So the final bill that passed in 2014 allowed community colleges to offer bachelor’s programs in such subjects as mortuary sciences and ranch management but not nursing.

Hundreds of thousands of Americans flocked to nursing schools over the past decade, drawn by the prospect of a well-paying job with a degree that takes as little as two years. But many have graduated only to find the goal posts have shifted, as hospitals seek nurses with more-advanced degrees, partly in response to an increasingly complex health-care system.

The traditional view of careers looks something like a straight line that hopefully slopes in an upwards direction. Professionals seek to get more money and bigger jobs, year after year, until they just can’t do it any more.
But this is a model for a world that changed slower than ours does today. First Blockbuster and now Radio Shack are disappearing from retail strip malls… Kodak went from everywhere to nowhere… large public companies have all but stopped growing.
To top it all off, social media has changed the balance of power. Without even knowing each other, customers of a firm band together to ridicule their service, quality and prices. News travels in seconds. Social influence is even toppling entire governments today, so how can you expect your career path to still go in a straight line?
In this environment, you have to be flexible. Leave your expectations behind, and change as the world changes. The future belongs to the most flexible, not the strongest or smartest.
The problem, of course, is that no one knows how the future will evolve. That’s why I’ve been looking at a wide range of possible answers.
One out-of-the-box idea is that academic careers might serve as a new model for other types of careers. To illustrate, here’s a thought-provoking passage from a research paper by Yehuda Baruch:
…lateral and even downwards movement are accepted (e.g. when a Dean returns to serve as a Professor, conducting research and teaching, it is not considered “demotion”). Upwards mobility is limited, even not desired (becoming a Dean might take scholars off the research route)… Sabbaticals are part of the career. Perhaps more fundamental, the academic career model builds on networking within and across organizations.
The main reason this idea caught my attention is that while professors aren’t always known for their flexibility, they are expected to both conduct research and drive learning in their chosen field. This quest for knowledge should power your career as well.
Thinking of your career through the lens of this “academic” model might lead you to a much more interesting and robust career than you would get from employing a traditional corporate mindset.
For example, your goal might morph from trying to get promoted as often as possible to becoming a leading expert in your field. You might compare yourself to all experts in your field, instead of to all the managers in your department.

The adage says, “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush,” and its wisdom is applicable to job seekers. It is usually far easier to find another job if you’re already employed. But how can you ensure that the worst never happens to you — that you’re never left without a job and possibilities for your next opportunity?
Here are five suggestions from career coach Deborah Brown-Volkman:
Keep Thinking Positive
ounds deceptively simple, but try embracing the power of positive thinking when you’re thinking about your career. “When you tell yourself something bad will happen to your job, something bad will probably happen,” says Brown-Volkman. “If you tell yourself that you are marketable and confident and that you will always be working, your words can make this true.”
Keep Thinking Ahead
If you’re not following trends within your particular industry, you could be caught off guard by a layoff. Is your position or division vulnerable to outsourcing, further automation or elimination? Brown-Volkman says, “If your job is being eliminated or outsourced, you will want to know about it before you are in the room with the human resources person telling you that your job is going away.”
She urges professionals, “Look for trends and then train yourself in growth areas. Having the right skills at the right time ensures that no matter what is happening around you, you will be needed and employable.”

Innovative Collaboration Will Blend New and Traditional Learning Methodologies to Expand Bouve College School of Nursing Programs Nationally
Northeastern University, a global, experiential research institution, has teamed up with Orbis Education to help Northeastern’s Bouve College School of Nursing expand its baccalaureate and masters degree programs nationwide. Orbis Education will provide online learning, marketing, and operational support for the Northeastern degree offerings.
This innovative collaboration will incorporate online learning and traditional hospital-based clinical experience for adult students in selected markets throughout the United States. Boston-based Northeastern plans to expand all of its programs, including an RN-to-BSN program, baccalaureate program (BSN), as well as several graduate-level programs. One particular area of focus will be on nurse practitioner (NP) programs. Graduates from NP programs are highly sought, and new health care reforms will make the demand even greater.
“We are very pleased to work with a prestigious partner like Northeastern,” said Daniel Briggs, Chief Executive Officer of Orbis Education. “Expanding the capacity of Northeastern’s undergraduate and graduate degree programs will continue our corporate goal of alleviating the real nursing shortage that our nation faces. This collaboration allows us to continue to provide highly skilled, well-qualified, registered nurses that are sought after by employers.”
