Pamela R. Jeffries, PhD, RN, FAAN, of the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing (JHUSON) has been awarded a 2013 Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Excellence Award by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN).

“This is a very gratifying award personally,” says Jeffries, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at JHUSON. “But more important, this is another push in the direction we as a school, as nurse leaders, want to go in educating the next generations.”

The purpose of the AACN Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Excellence Award is to recognize a faculty member who systematically investigates questions related to student learning and the conditions under which it occurs in order to improve outcomes.

Jeffries, an expert in experiential learning, innovative teaching strategies, and the use of technology, is an American Nurse Educator Fellow (ANEF), a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Executive Nurse Fellow (ENF), serves as a member of the Institute of Medicine’s Global, Intraprofessional Education (IPE) forum, and is president-elect of the international Society for Simulation in Healthcare.

She recently edited two books, Simulations in Nursing Education: From Conceptualization to Evaluation (2nd edition) and Developing Simulation Centers Using the Consortium Model.
