2021 Fellows Announcement


The Canadian Nurse Educator Institute (CNEI) Advisory Board is pleased to announce that the 2021 Fellows of the Canadian Nurse Educator Institute are Dr. Suzanne Campbell and Dr. Marian Luctkar-Flude.

Dr. Suzanne Campbell, University of British Columbia

Dr. Campbell brings to her work a deep evidence-informed perspective on the scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL) and has built an outstanding program of scholarship around innovations in technological options (e.g., simulators) associated with enhanced learning in the applied context. She infuses that work with strong clinical expertise and nurse practitioner background in women’s health. Layered onto that is a clear and evident passion for teaching excellence, enacted through a full range of modalities in nursing education and informed by her program of scholarly research and knowledge dissemination in case-based simulation and experiential learning. Dr. Campbell’s transformational servant leadership style has resulted in her influential position in Director/Dean roles in the US and Canada. Recruited to be Director of the University of British Columbia School of Nursing in 2012, related to her record of excellence in teaching modalities and scholarly research and dissemination, Dr. Campbell continued to develop a world class body of scholarship and educational resources in the clinical learning simulation field. During her tenure in that leadership position, she continued to advance both the scholarship and influence of that work engaging colleagues in leadership positions in other Schools regionally and nationally, publishing award winning work, supervising students, and providing provincial, regional, national and international workshops/seminars. Consistently seeking out opportunities to be a voice for nursing and nursing education, her contributions stem from a practical leadership stance with her ability to suggest ideas, provide data, and maintain an unthreatening yet powerful persistence. This advocacy for nursing education, including service on boards, extends beyond pre-licensure education and includes advanced practice, doctoral, and internationally educated nurses. Integrating insights from the North American nursing education experience into current international work, she has received awards in recognition of scholarship, teaching, and visionary leadership at an international level.
