Waite Receives Education Award, is Invited to Board of Catholic Health System
May 9, 2013
Roberta Waite, PhD, an associate professor and the Assistant Dean of Academic Integration and Evaluation of Community Programs, was awarded the 2013 International Society of Psychiatric Nursing Education (ISPN) Award at this year’s ISPN Conference in San Antonio, Texas. The Education Award acknowledges “exceptional creativity and effectiveness in curriculum development, teaching strategies, student recruitment and support, educational outreach, and other activities by a psychiatric-mental health nurse education viewed as a mentor and role model by colleagues and students.”
Waite was also invited to the new board of Trinity Health and Catholic Health East. Catholic Health East and Trinity Health recently merged to make one of the largest Catholic health systems in the nation. All Board members from both organizations were re-interviewed and vetted; only six Board members from each organization were chosen to serve on the new Board of Directors.
