Jan. 27, 2004

KALAMAZOO--Karen Morin, a professor of nursing at Western Michigan University, has received the Excellence in Teaching Award from the National League of Nursing.

The award is given every two years. Morin was presented the honor at the league's summit in San Antonio last fall.

Morin also has been elected to a four-year term as director of the Sigma Theta Tau Honor Society of Nursing. Sigma Theta Tau is an international nursing honor society that provides leadership and scholarship in practice, education and research to enhance the health of all people.

Prior to joining the faculty in WMU's Bronson School of Nursing in fall 2003, Morin was head of the master's and doctoral programs at Penn State University School of Nursing. She served for one year as interim director of the Penn State school immediately before coming to WMU.

A native of northern Quebec, Morin received a bachelor's degree from the University of Ottawa and was a practicing nurse in Toronto for several years. She later earned a master of science in nursing from the University of Central Arkansas and a doctor of science in nursing from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
