May 01, 2019

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State College of Nursing Assistant Teaching Professor, Elizabeth Cutezo, has been one of 35 nursing faculty nationwide to participate in the 2019 Digital Innovation Bootcamp hosted by the American Association of Colleges of Nurses (AACN).

The AACN strives to advance teaching in the nursing and be the overall academic voice for the field.

According the AACN website, it uses its role to perform tasks such as “working to establish quality standards for nursing education; assisting schools in implementing those standards; influencing the nursing profession to improve health care; and promoting public support for professional nursing education, research, and practice.”

Participants for the event come from more than 20 states plus the District of Columbia, ranging from faculty in small liberal arts colleges to big state universities.

The theme of the bootcamp this year is "From Concept to Action." It is designed for faculty and administrators at different colleges to come together to create digital teaching content to engage students at every university in different learning experiences.

The conference bootcamp will be held from June 24-27 in Austin, Texas. It will be a 3-day program where the members will be able to learn directly from executives in Apple Development about leading technology practices to bring back to their universities for higher learning.

Out of more than 130 applicants, Cutezo will take part in the bootcamp to complete a final digital project at the end to present at one of AACN's upcoming conferences.
