Nursing Professor Named Nurse Educator Fellow
The Nursing Department at Trinity Christian College is celebrating the recent accomplishment of Assistant Professor of Nursing Elizabeth Chang.
Chang has received a $10,000 Nurse Educator Fellowship from the Illinois Board of Higher Education. She is one of 18 faculty members from 18 different institutions to receive the award.
The fellowship helps institutions recognize well-qualified nurse educators and helps the state continue to address the high demand for well-trained nurses.
“All of the department will benefit from her participation in events throughout the spring semester that will enhance learning opportunities for our students,” said Dr. Laurel Quinn, chair of the nursing department.
Chang joined the nursing faculty in 2010 with a background in family practice. Her love for teaching is matched by her desire to serve others, and she has traveled overseas on various medical mission trips. Her academic and professional achievements have earned her three Clinical Excellence Awards and the opportunity to co-author several short courses for the nursing school of the International Hospital Kampala in Uganda, Africa.
