Two faculty members were recently recognized for nursing excellence by the Nightingale Committee of the Pikes Peak Region at a March 2 event at The Pinery at the Hill, Colorado Springs.

Deb Kenny, associate professor, Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Beth-El College of Nursing and Health Sciences, and Deb Tuffield, senior instructor, Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Beth-El College of Nursing and Health Sciences, were nominated for Nightingale Luminary Awards. Kenny will represent Colorado Springs and compete at a statewide Nightingale Luminary Awards event.

Nancy Smith, dean, Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Beth-El College of Nursing and Health Sciences, served as keynote speaker for the event.

The Nightingale Awards was founded in 1985 to honor nurses who best exemplify the philosophy and practice of Florence Nightingale, a 19th century nursing pioneer who epitomized the art of helping people toward their optimal health.
