Dominican University New York has been honored for its commitment to improving nursing education.  The University received the Assessment and Impact Award for Nursing Education from Skyfactor Benchworks, a Macmillan Learning brand.  The award celebrates the innovative ways that nursing schools create positive education experiences within their programs.   

Dominican University was recognized for maintaining one-on-one connections with students during the pandemic and purchasing a simulation lab to provide instruction for students. 

“Nurses provide hands-on care, support, and treatment for people when they’re at their most vulnerable, and successful nursing education creates nurses who are ready for that incredible challenge. Our team is pleased to recognize Dominican University New York, King University and Thomas Jefferson University as being best-in-class in listening to the needs of nursing students and teaching them how to deliver safe, quality patient care,” said Steven Ray, Vice President of Enterprise Solutions, Macmillan Learning. 

The three winners were selected using a multi-step evaluation process that included an analysis of multi-year assessment data by the Benchworks Analytics and Research Team.  The programs selected had the best results or best increases in performance as determined by survey scores.  Skyfactor Benchworks assessments are the most widely used programs in nursing education and have been available for nearly 25 years.
