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.
