Dr. Daisy Sherry, assistant professor of nursing and health professions at Lewis University, recently received a $10,000 Nurse Educator Fellowship Award from the Illinois Board of Higher Education. The funds of the fellowship will support Sherry’s faculty and professional development.
“I am honored to receive this award that truly reflects the support and mentorship I received from my colleagues,” commented Sherry, who has taught at Lewis University since 2007.
The Nurse Educator Fellowship program promotes the retention of well-qualified nursing faculty at institutions of higher education that award nursing degrees. The fellowship supplements the recipients’ salaries and helps to defray professional development and continuing education expenses.
Sherry received her bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, and PhD in nursing from the University of Illinois at Chicago. She specializes in cardiac care.
Participation in this program is open to Illinois institutions of higher learning with a nursing program approved by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation and accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) or the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC). Nominations must be certified by the institution's Chief Nursing Administrator.
