James Fell Appointed to Advisory Group on Nursing Education

Baldwin Wallace University’s Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program (ABSN) is gaining a new distinction through its director/interim administrator and associate professor, James Fell, recently appointed to a two-year term with the Ohio Board of Nursing Advisory Group on Nursing Education.

The advisory group, comprised of distinguished nurses and nursing educators from all over the state, is selected by the Board each year to meet and propose ways in which nursing education programs can be improved.

With experience leading the growing BW program and many years of teaching and administrative experience in BSN, ND (nursing doctorate), Diploma, and Associate Degree (ADN) nursing education, Fell has been given the specific designation as the representative for Ohio accelerated BSN programs.

The decorated 28-year (retired) Navy Nurse Corps Reserve member, who served on active duty during Operations Desert Storm, Enduring Freedom and New Dawn, currently teaches courses in behavioral health, leadership and ethics, and the capstone Seminar in Professional Nursing Practice within the ABSN program, among several others. The BW program heads into its fourth year in Fall 2015.
