Green Becomes Certified Nurse Educator
Lee University’s Twyla Green, lecturer in nursing, has recently received the designation of Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) from the National League for Nursing.
This certification serves as a mark of professionalism and distinction for nursing faculty. It establishes nursing education as a specialty area of practice and creates an opportunity for faculty to demonstrate expertise in this role.
“Becoming a Certified Nurse Educator was a goal and milestone set when I transitioned from the full-time clinical setting to nursing academia,” said Green. “Having this certification as a School of Nursing faculty member gives me the confidence and motivation to offer my students the very best instructional methods possible for their successful learning as nursing students.”
Since 2008, Green has also held the Registered Nurse Certification for Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing (RNC-NIC). This recognizes specialty experience in providing care to acutely and critically ill neonatal patients and their families within an intensive care environment.
Green obtained Bachelor of Science degrees in chemistry from Lee College and nursing from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Her Master of Science in nursing was granted from Saint Xavier University in Chicago.
She serves as full-time faculty in the Lee University School of Nursing and part-time staff nurse in the Erlanger East NICU (newborn intensive care unit). Green is married to William, Dean of the School of Music at Lee. They have two children, Jonathan, 30 and Mary Beth, 23.
