News Release

Congratulations to Kirsten Dieckman, Cumberland, for passing the National Certified Nurse Educator® (CNE) exam. Dieckman is the program director and Nursing – Associate Degree instructor at WITC.

This certification was created by the National League for Nursing (NLN) to establish nursing education as an advanced specialty area of practice, enabling faculty to broadcast their expertise in this role. Nurse educators must meet NLN’s rigorous and tough standards to earn this prestigious credential. This certification communicates to students, colleagues in nursing education and the wider academic and health care communities that the highest standards of excellence have been achieved. CNE-credentialed nurse educators are leaders in the specialty role of nurse educator as well as role models bearing a mark of distinction.

“The preparation for this national certification has augmented my nursing education knowledge,” said Dieckman. “This certification validates the evidence-based practices implemented in the nursing program. I look forward to continued student success supported by the concepts related to acquiring my certification as a nurse educator.”
