Director of Nursing School Named One of Top Nursing Educators in U.S.

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.

Wall Street Journal: Colleges Lock Horns Over Nursing Programs

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.

All of these colleges offer programs that introduce students to nursing and develop a strong foundation that allows graduates to either enter the workforce or pursue advanced degrees. Graduates of these programs are also qualified to take the National Council Licensing Examination to become a registered nurse.

How To Talk About Money During The Hiring Process

You can’t keep going on interviews with no idea of what an employer is planning to pay you if you get the job. You have to bring up the topic of salary.

If you need inspiration to ask the salary question, just think about a plumber.

The plumber isn’t going to come over and walk around looking at the work that a homeowner needs done without talking about money. Eventually the plumber is going to say “You’re looking at about ten thousand dollars worth of work” or the homeowner is going to say “How much is this going to cost me?”

They’re not going to dance around the topic and hope for the best. Only job-seekers do that, and only a certain kind of job-seeker.

The kind of job-seeker who doesn’t bring up salary during the hiring process and hopes that s/he gets a job offer with a reasonable salary in it is afraid. That’s the only reason to keep silent about such a vital topic.

The job-seeker is afraid that if he or she brings up the salary topic, the employer might not like it. They might get mad and cast him out of the candidate pool. That’s the fear. Think about it, though – that fear isn’t reasonable. If you’re thinking about working with people who would be so hostile and crazy that they’d drop you from a candidate roster just for asking about salary, why would ever consider working with them?

17 Tips To Survive Your Next Networking Event

Make the most of your time

You arrive alone. Your heart is beating a little faster than normal and suddenly all of your charisma and charm go out the window. You try to lock eyes with someone so that you can find a temporary home in what can feel like a sea of strangers. But everyone looks happily engaged in conversation.

While this might sound like your experience at a middle school dance, it’s also what many people feel when they enter a networking event. These are completely natural reactions, even for the biggest extroverts. The great news is that people go to these events to meet strangers, so you’re in the same position as everyone else. Here are 17 helpful tips for navigating a networking event and making the most of your time there:

Find the bar! Whether or not you’re drinking, it’s always a great idea to position yourself at the edge of the bar. Many people run for the bar when they get to a networking event in order to get a short respite from an overwhelming entrance. If you position yourself a few steps from the bar, you can easily strike up a conversation as people turn with drink in hand.
Be yourself. Networking events are meant as jumping-off points for relationship building. If you can’t be yourself, you’ll be starting off these new relationships with a lie. Don’t try to be the person you think others want to meet. Be genuine. The people you connect with when you are authentic are the ones you’ll want to stay in touch with.
