Nursing Receives Achievement Award
MAILED: Oct. 15, 1998|
Susan Johnson, the associate dean and educational administrator of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's School of Nursing, has received the Midwest Alliance in Nursing (MAIN) Agency Achievement Award.
Johnson, formerly chair of the department of nursing at the University of South Dakota, is a co-recipient of the award with Donna Demarest of the Oglala Lakota Community College. They served as principal investigators of the Kellogg Collaborative Education Project of the University of South Dakota and Oglala Lakota Community College.
Three years ago, Johnson and Demarest collaborated in writing a $1.2 million Kellogg Grant to improve recruitment, retention and advanced nursing educational opportunities for Native American nursing students.
The achievement award was presented during MAIN's 19th annual conference in September to recognize MAIN agencies that have made an outstanding contribution toward the improvement of the health status of citizens in the Midwest through collaborative efforts in nursing education, nursing practice and nursing research.
MAIN is a 13-state association of nursing service and education agencies and individual members whose goal is to enhance the health of the people in the Midwest region.
Johnson began her administrative duties at UW-Eau Claire in July and also is a professor in the department of nursing systems.
