Nyack's School of Nursing Dean, Dr. Elizabeth Simon Named a Fulbright Scholar

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Monday June 29, 2015

The J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board and the United States Department of State recently announced that Dr. Elizabeth Simon, dean of the Cheryl Phenicie School of Nursing at Nyack College was selected for a prestigious Fulbright Scholar grant to lecture at the College of Nursing, Choithram Medical Centre and Christian Medical College and Hospital during the 2015-2016 academic year. According to a U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs press release, Dr. Simon will lecture on “critical care nursing topics to graduate students and adult health nursing courses to undergraduate students.”

Dr. Simon is one of more than 400 U.S. faculty and professionals who will participate in the Fulbright Specialists Program, which complements the traditional Fulbright Scholar Program and gives individuals an opportunity to support curricular and faculty development and institutional planning at post-secondary academic institutions around the world.

With earned degrees from Walden University (Ph.D.), Hunter College (MS in Adult Health), Teachers College, Columbia University (Ed.M.), School of Nursing, Columbia University (MS in Nursing–Critical Care), Punjab University, Ludhiana, India (BSN), and Kerala University, India (Pre-degree in Science), Dr. Simon is an accomplished academic. She is an author whose most recent book is Critical Care Practice Guide: A Roadmap for New Graduates and Students (Jones & Bartlett). Her articles in peer reviewed journals and periodicals such as Journal of Christian Nursing, Nursing Journal of India, Nurse Educator, Journal of Nursing Education, and Nurses Mission Voice are also among her published works. She is a regular presenter at conferences and conventions sponsored by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, the International Council of Nurses, the Research Congress of Sigma Theta Tau, Honor Society of Nursing, and the National Association of Indian Nurses of America.

The tireless efforts of Dean Simon and her nursing faculty and staff resulted in Nyack’s School of Nursing being granted final accreditation by the Board of Commissioners of the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) in October 2013. In addition, because of her established relationship with Columbia Asia Yeshwanthpur Hospital in India, a comprehensive care facility known for its multiple specialties, Dr. Simon has spearheaded trips for Nyack students to take their nursing clinicals.

On receiving the Fulbright grant, Dr. Simon commented, “I absolutely marvel at God's favor. I consider this honor a commendation from God for being here at Nyack College, the place He wanted me to be.”

Is Nyack For You? Are You for Nyack?

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Monday June 29, 2015

Roy Disney, nephew of Walt Disney and former executive with the Disney Corporation once observed, “When you know what your values are, its not hard to make decisions.”

At Nyack College, we know what our values are. Our values are important to us because they influence what we decide to do and shape how we decide to do it.

The five values that define Nyack College are:

Academic Excellence
Global Engagement
Intentional Diversity
Personal Transformation
Social Relevance

At Nyack, these values are at the very center of everything we do as a college. We seek to fulfill our educational mission by living out these values in meaningful ways.

If you are considering enrolling in any of Nyack’s programs, it is important that you know these values. These tell you what a Nyack education is all about and allow you to decide if this is what you are looking for. After all, if you know Nyack’s values, and if you know your own, it will become far easier for you to make a decision.

Consider these values, and whether or not they are truly important to you. If indeed they are, you can know that all of us at Nyack will be working towards the same outcomes.  That is perhaps the very best and most important factor on which to base your decision to enroll.

And if you find that these values are your values, you’ve just taken an important step toward making a decision.
