“On behalf of the NLN, first I’d like to publicly thank outgoing League president, Judith A. Halstead, PhD, RN, FAAN, ANEF for her extraordinary leadership and dedicated service. I, along with many others at the NLN, have relied on Judy’s wise counsel in supporting the mission of the NLN,” said NLN CEO Beverly Malone, PhD, RN, FAAN.
“Now, I have the pleasure of welcoming a new president, along with renewed leadership on the board, to help forge the next stage in the NLN’s history, as we promote excellence in nursing education to build a strong and diverse nursing workforce to advance the nation’s health. My team and I are excited to work with Marsha, with Anne, and with our two brand new members of the NLN Board of Governors: Janet McMahon and Elaine Patterson. And congratulations to our re-elected board members: Secretary Joan Frey, Gail Baumlein, and Teresa Shellenbarger,” Dr. Malone concluded.
