Julie Weichman Becomes Certified Nurse Educator

February 4, 2021

Julie Weichman MSN, RNC-MNN, Assistant Professor of Nursing at Grand View, passed her CNE (Certified Nurse Educator) exam. There is a lot of prep, studying, and then testing to receive this certification.

Certification in any field is a mark of professionalism. For academic nurse educators, it establishes nursing education as a specialty area of practice and creates a means for faculty to demonstrate their expertise in this role. It communicates to students, peers and the academic communities that the highest standards of excellence in education are being met. By becoming a certified nurse educator, Julie serves as a nurse scholar and role model.

"This became a goal of mine to prove to myself that I could do it, and to improve as a nurse educator," Weichman says. "I have been certified as a maternal newborn nurse for 13 years now.  Taking the certified nurse educator exam seemed like the next step in my role as an academic nurse educator."
