Dr. Nancy Mimm of the Harrisburg University of Science and Technology M.S. Nursing program has been nominated for a 2022 Osmosis Raise the Line Faculty Award by healthcare education platform Osmosis by Elsevier.

Developed to recognize the inspirational educators who are responsible for training the next generation of healthcare professionals, the Raise the Line Faculty Awards celebrate faculty who are constantly helping to “raise the line” with exceptional teaching standards and academic rigor that encourages learners to develop into competent, compassionate, and ethical clinicians.

“Since we launched the Raise the Line Faculty Awards in 2020, we’ve had the privilege of speaking with, and learning from, hundreds of instrumental faculty members who are helping shape our next generation of healthcare providers,” said Lindsey Smith, the Director of Engagement and Raise the Line Faculty Award program manager. “We’re very proud of the incredible growth of the program and look forward to continuing our work to honor health educators worldwide.”

I am very honored to be nominated to be nominated for this award. Nursing faculty hold the key to teaching students to improve their student’s abilities to promote the best health and well-being of the populations and individuals that they serve,” says Mimm.  

Mimm is an Assistant Professor in the Nursing Program with a specialization/concentration in Population Health at Harrisburg University. Dr. Mimm is board certified in Advanced Public Health with a demonstrated history of working in healthcare leadership. She is interested in public health topics including maternal child health, nursing leadership, public health administration, evidence-based practice implementation and the evaluation of clinical outcomes.  Her research interests include substance-exposed infants and mothers, safe infant sleep, public policy and how nursing can have a positive impact. She received her Doctor of Nursing Practice from Rutgers University. Her scholarly project was Bridging the Breastfeeding Gap through the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner.
