Bindon also was named director of the post-master’s Teaching in Nursing and Health Professions Certificate.
The University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON) has named Susan L. Bindon, DNP ’11, MS ’96, RN, NPD-BC, CNE, CNEcl, associate professor and associate dean for faculty development, as the director of the Institute for Educators and of the post-master’s Teaching in Nursing and Health Professions Certificate.
As the institute’s director, Bindon will guide faculty development efforts at UMSON and statewide. The institute serves a dual mission of preparing nurses for teaching roles in Maryland’s academic and practice settings and providing ongoing professional development for faculty and nurse educators in clinical settings. As the program director for the teaching certificate, Bindon will work with the institute’s team to address expanding nurse educator roles and to attract and recruit future nurse educators.
“Having been a part of the Institute for the past 10 years, I’m especially proud now to lead the team in its next phase of growth and influence,” Bindon said. “I see the Institute as a vital part of UMSON as we strive to support our faculty’s teaching excellence and as a partner for our teaching colleagues at the University and around the state.”
