The Frances M. McLaughlin Division of Nursing at Bloomfield College has added another recognition to its name.

Skyfactor Benchworks, a Macmillan Learning Company that provides research-based program benchmarking and assessments to help colleges identify areas of improvement, named Bloomfield College among the winners of its inaugural Assessment and Impact Awards for Nursing Education.

According to the press release, the award was created to highlight schools of nursing that are successfully using data to improve their programs, helping to retain students and developing more practice-ready nursing professionals.

“Our faculty within the Bloomfield College Division of Nursing are an outstanding group of educators who work to make our program great,” said Dr. Neddie Serra, Chair of the Division at the College. “I would like to give special mention to faculty members Dr. Ismat Mikky and the recently retired Dr. Carolyn Tuella for their work on our internal Research and Evaluation Committee. They are responsible for administering and analyzing the information from the Skyfactor Assessments.”

The winners, which also included Colorado Technical University, Rowan University and Seton Hall University, were selected using Benchworks’ multi-step evaluation process that included an analysis of multi-year assessment data that identified programs that either had the best results or best increases in performance in areas like course interactions and quality of instruction, as well as interviews and with nursing program faculty and administration.

Assessment and Impact Award for Nursing winners were acknowledged at the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s 2019 Academic Nursing Leadership Conference in Washington over the weekend.
