Two NLN Titles Named 2017 Book of the Year Award-Winners

Prestigious Annual Competition by American Journal of Nursing (AJN) Honors Top Publications for Advancing Health Care
Washington, DC, January 12, 2018 — In its 48th annual Book of the Year Awards competition, the American Journal of Nursing (AJN) selected the year's exceptional texts for their positive impact on the quality of health care and patient outcomes. Among the winners are two recently published National League for Nursing titles:
  • Teaching with ACE.S: A Faculty Guide; edited by M. Elaine Tagliareni, EdD, RN, CNE, FAAN — 3rd place in the category Gerontological Nursing

    A publication of the NLN Center for Excellence in the Care of Vulnerable Populations and dedicated to the late Dr. Andrea Mengel, a co-creator of the ACE.S project and trailblazer in geriatric nursing, this book provides a roadmap for the implementation of NLN's signature program: Advancing Care Excellence for Seniors (ACE.S). The first section offers the foundational evidence for the ACE.S framework and evaluation of the total project; the second section presents exemplars of how faculty, many of them NLN Hearst Foundations Award winners, applied the ACE.S framework to their unique curricula.
  • Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice: Creating a Blueprint for Nurse Educators; edited by Elizabeth Speakman, EdD, RN, CDE, FNAP, ANEF, FAAN — 2nd place in the category Nursing Education/Continuing Education/Professional Development

    Published in collaboration with the NLN Center for Transformational Leadership, and edited by Dr. Speakman, a recognized leader in the field of interprofessional education in health care, this practical book helps nurse educators develop multidisciplinarye, team-based learning opportunities for students. Each chapter, coauthored by an expert in interprofessional education, presents a broad perspective on how to create, deliver, and evaluate meaningful interprofessional education and collaborative practice learning opportunities.
Published in 2016 under the NLN-Wolters Kluwer Health imprint, "Both volumes," NLN President G. Rumay Alexander, EdD, RN, FAAN, noted, "present the nursing community with evidence-based practices in curriculum development and teaching-learning strategies through the work of these leading scholars."
