CANR alumni honors

Five UD College of Agriculture and Natural Resources graduates were presented with honors, including the George M. Worrilow Award, the Distinguished Alumni Award and the Distinguished Young Alumni Award, during a ceremony Oct. 17.

Impactful educator

Bonnie Meszaros, associate director of the UD's Center for Economic Education, has won the prestigious John C. Schramm Leadership Award presented by the National Association of Economic Educators.

Selection of the schools on the list was based on factors such as graduation rates, academic and career support services offered to students, and admissions selectivity.

According to School of Nursing Director Kathleen Schell, all of UD’s master’s-level core courses, as well as the entire clinical nurse specialist and health services administration programs, are available online. The school has also offered a BSN distance program for practicing RNs since 1993.

“These programs were developed to meet the needs of the many registered nurses who juggle full-time work, families, and community service yet still aspire to higher education,” Schell says. 

“The complexity of health care today demands the knowledge and skills of advanced practice registered nurses to promote quality and safety, care coordination, and increased access to health care services. By providing flexibility in our advanced degree programs, we’re demonstrating our commitment to our students, the profession, and society.”

The U.S. News and World Report education rankings cover a number of categories, including best colleges, best graduate programs, world’s best universities, best online education programs, and best high schools.
