NATIONAL NURSING GROUP HONORS BYU FACULTY MEMBER

An assistant professor of nursing from Brigham Young University has been chosen from 30,000 members nationwide to receive the Award for Excellence in Nursing Education from the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nursing (AWHONN).

"This award is given annually to an AWHONN member recognized by her peers as exemplifying the highest standards of service to education," said Tchee Stanton, president of AWHONN.Recipient Lynn Callister said she adds meaning to her students' work by having them do several things.

She asks her students to keep journals of their clinical experiences to enhance their critical thinking skills. The journals also provide an opportunity to give her students feedback.

Sometimes Callister also has her students talk to their mothers about their births.

Callister has taught maternal and newborn nursing and women's health at BYU since 1988.
