Nursing Faculty and Staff Publish Appreciative Inquiry Articles

Pace faculty and staff recently published two articles:

The articles appear in AI Practitioner Magazine as part of the May 2014 issue on the Long-Term Impact of Appreciative Inquiry at Colleges and Universities.

Appreciative Inquiry (evaluating outcomes through a positive lens) is changing the culture of the Lienhard School of Nursing, from one where faculty, staff, and students take a problem-oriented approach to one where we are on a quest for quality.

Lienhard recently gathered health care thought leaders for a webinar on Appreciative Inquiry in nursing education.   The dean and Lienhard professors, along with Jeanie Cockell, EdD, author of the influential book, “Appreciative Inquiry in Higher Education: A Transformative Force” addressed Appreciative Inquiry: what is it, why use it, and how it is changing Lienhard’s culture.  To access the webinar, email Sharon Lewis at slewis2@pace.edu.
