Nadeena Frye, the dean of Nursing at Ivy Tech Community College’s Fort Wayne Campus, has been selected for the National League for Nursing’s year-long LEAD program, a part of the league’s Leadership Institute. LEAD is for nursing educators who’ve transitioned quickly into leadership positions or look to advance in management or administration.
The league selected 56 educators in nursing from around the world as part of the program. Qualifications included experience, position, and a submitted essay.
“My goal is to further develop my leadership skills in order to successfully lead our nursing program into the next decade,” Frye says.
In the year-long program, Frye also looks to expand the capacity of Ivy Tech Fort Wayne’s nursing program, while maintaining educational quality and outcomes.
Frye is one of five Ivy Tech employees selected as part of the LEAD program. Other attendees are Angela Koller, dean of Nursing at the Indianapolis Campus; Sharon Willey, dean of Nursing at the Muncie Campus; Jennifer Philbin, dean of Nursing at the Gary Campus; Ashley Carter, Nursing department chair at the Evansville Campus; and Joy Barnes, nursing faculty at the South Bend Campus.
