Terri Liberto, Ph.D., RN, assistant professor of nursing and department chair of nursing at La Roche College, has received The Educator with the Nurse’s Touch Award from the Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI).
Dr. Liberto, of Sarver, Pa., was one of four educators selected out of 500 nominations across the country to receive this prestigious award. ATI recognized Dr. Liberto as an educator who demonstrates the integration of professional and interpersonal skills into her nursing practice and education of students. These skills include: how to stay healthy and manage work-related stress, convey professional behaviors and attitudes, use nursing informatics and technology, function as a leader of the health care team and act a client advocate.
“I am honored to receive this award. I could not achieve these great outcomes in the nursing department without the collaboration from the nursing faculty and the support of the administration at La Roche College,” Dr. Liberto said.
