Lary Appointed NLN Ambassador

Released: 04/24/2008

Dr. Dorothy Lary, chairwoman of the Department of Nursing at LSU at Alexandria, has been appointed an ambassador by the National League for Nursing. NLN ambassadors keep faculty and administration informed about nursing initiatives, grant opportunities and professional development activities. Ambassadors also provide feedback from nurse educators to the NLN about issues and challenges in the nursing profession.

The NLN ambassador program was established in 2006 with 126 members and has grown to 689 representing schools of nursing in 48 states. Nursing has produced more graduates than any other area of study in the nearly 50-year history of LSUA.
