The School of Nursing is pleased to congratulate Kristy Crownhart, Clinical Assistant Professor and Doctor of Nursing Practice Coordinator on her acceptance into the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) 7th cohort Faculty Leadership Mentoring Program.

The program will run from November 2021 to December 2022 and provides a small cohort of nurse practitioner (NP) faculty members who are emerging leaders in their academic institutions with the opportunity for targeted career and leadership development. Senior NP faculty leaders establish one-on-one mentoring relationships with participants which afford further development of their knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to meet the growing and diverse challenges confronting new and emerging NP education leaders. The program is one of the three activities for faculty that supports NONPF's Faculty Institute.

In 2014, the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) launched a program for nurse practitioner (NP) faculty who had assumed leadership roles as program directors and/or other administrators in their academic institutions. Today, NONPF continues its commitment to the program. Participants engage in focused self-development using a variety of group processes and testing in order to identify individual strengths and areas for improvement. Strategies for effective leadership of NP education programs are developed and applied in the academic setting. Participants engage in curricular innovations in their home academic settings to enhance the preparation of graduates for the reality of current and future NP practice.

ISU School of Nursing was one of 50 schools selected for White Coat Ceremony funding.

AACN and The Arnold P. Gold Foundation Announce New Funding for 50 Nursing Schools to Host White Coat/Oath Ceremonies


WASHINGTON, D.C., July 30, 2021 – Today, The Arnold P. Gold Foundation and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) announced that 50 schools of nursing nationwide were selected to receive funding to host White Coat/Oath Ceremonies for incoming students in the 2021-2022 academic year. Through this collaboration, the two organizations are highlighting the importance of compassionate care to nursing students early in their professional formation.

“The compassionate connection that nurses forge with their patients is the foundation of humanistic healthcare – care that all people deserve. We are delighted to join with AACN to support 50 schools of nursing in establishing this humanistic ritual and emphasizing the importance of the human connection in their future care,” said Dr. Richard I. Levin, President and CEO of the Gold Foundation.

“Quality health care is not possible without compassion,” said Dr. Deborah Trautman, AACN President and Chief Executive Officer. “Academic nursing is grateful to the Gold Foundation for their groundbreaking work to help all members of the healthcare team understand the importance of delivering patient-centered care.”

When nurses and other healthcare providers build caring, trusting, and collaborative relationships with patients, studies reveal a connection to better care decisions, improved patient adherence to treatment plans, and less costly healthcare outcomes. Though White Coat/Oath Ceremonies are not new in the health professions, they are relatively new to nursing. Since 2013, AACN and the Gold Foundation have worked together to implement this rite of passage in nursing, which has resulted in 410 schools of nursing in 50 states including the District of Columbia, receiving support as part of this initiative.

While these seeding grants are limited each year, all nursing schools are eligible to receive Gold lapel pins for their nursing students participating in White Coat/Oath Ceremonies. The pins include a signature Gold loop, which represents the essential bond between clinicians and patients, and serve as a reminder of their ceremony. (Schools may apply for free pins here.) The Gold Foundation also releases a free toolkit of downloadable resources each year to support all nursing schools in their White Coat/Oath Ceremony.

View a list of nursing schools selected to receive funding from the Gold Foundation to offer White Coat/Oath Ceremonies in the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters. For more information about this program, contact AACN’s Government Affairs and Policy Coordinator Emily Turek at [email protected].

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation is a nonprofit organization that champions humanism in healthcare, which we define as compassionate, collaborative, and scientifically excellent care. Founded in 1988, the Gold Foundation strengthens humanism through setting standards with rituals and recognition, sparking action through tools and events, and building communities, such as the Gold Humanism Honor Society, to support and activate advocates of compassionate care.

The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) is the national voice for academic nursing representing nearly 840 schools of nursing nationwide. AACN establishes quality standards for nursing education, influences the nursing profession to improve health care, and promotes public support of baccalaureate and graduate nursing education, research and practice.
