Teresa Robinette, coordinator of student enrollment and professional development for Waynesburg University’s Graduate and Professional Studies program, was recently named chair-elect of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s (AACN) Graduate Nursing Admissions Professionals (GNAP) awards committee.
“I am very excited to have been asked to be a part of a national group and to represent Waynesburg University,” said Robinette. “I look forward to learning and sharing with others from across the country.”
Robinette will work directly with the chair of the GNAP awards committee in exploring potential candidates for the GNAP’s annual awards: the Best Practice in Graduate Nurse Recruiting Award and the Sandy J. Cody Service to the Graduate Nursing Admissions Professional Leadership Network Award.
Waynesburg will benefit from Robinette’s appointment through networking and the sharing of best practices for the application, enrollment and retention strategies of graduate study in nursing.
GNAP is comprised of nursing education administrators and faculty whose purpose is to provide an opportunity for those most involved in recruiting graduate nursing students to share their successes, develop new strategies and to establish a resource network of peers.
Founded in 1849 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Waynesburg University is located on a traditional campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three additional sites located in the Pittsburgh region. The University is a member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) and is one of only 21 Bonner Scholar schools in the country, offering local, regional and international opportunities to touch the lives of others through service.
