Trumbull nursing faculty receive leadership awardPosted Apr. 17, 2014
Kent State University’s College of Nursing held the Eighth Annual Barbara Donaho Distinguished Leadership in Learning Awards Dinner at the Kent Student Center Ballroom on March 22. Most of those awarded are registered nurses in the Kent area, and serve in a variety of capacities, from staff nurses to advanced practice nurses, as well as medical doctors. These dedicated individuals or preceptors are recognized for generously donating their time to help mentor and develop Kent State’s nursing students – the next generation of professional nurses.
Included among the recognized were Kent State Trumbull nursing faculty Kathy Dwinnells and Lynne Walker, who were nominated by students Carol Francis, Edie Garrett, Christina Hartson and Nikki Seminara.
Started in 2007, the award is named after Barbara A. Donaho, a longtime friend and supporter of Kent State and the College of Nursing.
Donaho’s distinguished career includes roles as a director of nursing, senior vice president of patient services and most recently as president and CEO of St. Anthony’s Health Care Center in St. Petersburg, Fla. She also holds an honorary doctorate of law from Kent State.
Kent State’s College of Nursing is one of the largest and most comprehensive nursing programs in the nation.
