Retired Nursing Chair Received the 2012 Academic Nurse Educator Award
Dr. Lucille Gambardella, recently retired Wesley College nursing chair, was recognized by The Delaware Nurses Association and Delaware Organization of Nurse Leaders on July 12 with the 2012 Academic Nurse Educator Award. The award is to recognize those in the nursing field who consistently promote, excel, and bring a positive approach to their area of practice.
Gambardella retired this spring after 28 years at Wesley and still plans to stay involved in the nursing profession. More than seventy nurses were nominated by their peers to recognize their contributions to the field of nursing. The nominees were peer reviewed by a panel of nursing colleagues from the neighboring states. Gambardella was selected by the review panel as the candidate that most exemplified the qualities of excellence in their area of practice.
