The American Assembly for Men in Nursing (AAMN) has named the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh as a recipient of a 2016 AAMN Best School or College of Nursing Award.
UW Oshkosh will be recognized during the 41st AAMN conference Sept. 22.
From the AAMN: “I can’t think of a program more supportive of the mission and goals of the AAMN than the UW Oshkosh College of Nursing. This program and those involved in leadership positions in the college and in the school are exemplary in their commitment. This college is creating an inclusive atmosphere for all, creating an environmental climate of acceptance and encouragement, and creating a template for success in recruiting, retaining, and involving men in nursing. It is an understatement to say that UW Oshkosh College of Nursing is the model others should aspire to.”
The mission of the AAMN is to shape the practice, education, research and leadership for men and nursing and advance men’s health.
AAMN is a national organization with local chapters; the organization is governed by a board of directors. UW Oshkosh’s Brett MacWilliams, associate nursing professor, serves as the president-elect for the AAMN.
Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to contribute calendar items, campus announcements and other good news to UW Oshkosh Today.
