Seminole State College of Florida nursing Professor Maureen Tremel has been named a Fellow of the National League for Nursing’s (NLN) Academy of Nursing Education. She joins the academy’s 117 fellows representing nursing schools and programs throughout the United States.
The NLN established the Academy of Nursing Education in 2007 to foster excellence in nursing education by recognizing and capitalizing on the wisdom of nurse educators who have made sustained and significant contributions to nursing education.
Fellows provide visionary leadership in nursing education and in the Academy of Nursing Education and support the league’s vision of promoting standards of excellence that will increase the number of graduates from all types of nursing programs. Fellows serve as important role models and resources for new educators and for those who aspire to become nurse educators.
“The honor of being inducted into the NLN Academy of Nursing Fellows is very prestigious,” says Cheryl Cicotti, Seminole State’s associate dean of healthcare programs. “Professor Tremel’s innovative approach to learning strategies and her expertise with simulation give her and Seminole State College a national presence. This tribute to Maureen is well earned.”
Tremel, who is licensed as an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner by the State of Florida, has taught in Seminole State’s Nursing Program since 1986. She received her master’s degree in nursing from the University of Florida. In 2009, she was appointed Nursing Curriculum and Technology Director for Seminole State’s Regional Nursing Career Pathway Initiative, a $2 million, three-year U.S. Department of Labor Community-Based Job Training Grant.
“It’s a privilege to collaborate with educational leaders nationwide in preparing tomorrow’s nurses for lifelong careers,” Tremel says.
As a newly named fellow, Tremel has been lauded for her innovative teaching strategies; faculty development; academic leadership; and collaborative educational, practice and community partnerships.
Seminole State’s nursing programs are based at the Altamonte Springs Campus, which features 16 state-of-the-art healthcare labs and high-tech patient simulators. For more information, visit the Nursing Program website.
