Nursing Professor Recognized for Excellence

July 31st, 2014





RALEIGH, N.C. (July 31, 2014) - Wake Tech nursing professor and clinical coordinator Linda Tyler has  been selected as one of the Great 100 Nurses of North Carolina for 2014! Tyler was chosen by The Great 100, Inc., an organization recognizing nursing excellence and providing scholarships to students across the state. 

Being honored as one of The Great 100 is based on compassionate care, dedication to the field, leadership, and community service. The recognition places Tyler in a select group of registered nurses.    

“This selection reflects tremendous accomplishment and outstanding professional ability,” said Carla Tweddale, President of the Board of Directors for The Great 100 Nurses of North Carolina. “Most of the awards are given to bedside staff nurses; very few nursing educators are recognized.” 

“Linda’s expertise, her work ethic, and her commitment to high standards make her an exceptional role model for her students and her peers,” says Kathy Weeks, Department Head of Nursing. “We are truly fortunate to have her on the nursing faculty at Wake Tech!” 

Tyler has been teaching nursing since 1971 and has been employed by Wake Tech since 1980. She is a member of the NC Council for Associate Degree Nursing, the American Nurses Association, North Carolina Nurses Association, and the Consortium for Clinical Education and Practice. Tyler is also a recipient of the Health Sciences Division Excellence in Teaching Award. She will be recognized along with the other recipients at the 2014 Gala in Greensboro on October 18.
