Dr. Joan Tilghman among Daily Records 2017 Top 100 Women of MarylandPublished Thursday, April 06th, 2017
A record number of 435 women were nominated this year.
Dr. Joan Tilghman, associate dean and chairperson for the Helene Fuld School of Nursing has been named to the Daily Records 2017 Top 100 Women of Maryland.
Dr. Tilghman joined Coppin State University in 2004 as a part time faculty member in the College of Health Professions. Since that time, she has become a force behind many of the “progressive changes” within the college, including the inception of the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program.
The Doctor of Nursing Practice is the first doctoral program offered by the university.
For her part, Dr. Tilghman believes that “rigor, scholarliness, and attention to detail are requisites for the success of any academic program.” She also notes that the support and confidence of the school’s dean, Dr. Tracey L. Murray makes innovation and diversity in nursing healthcare possible.
In addition to a long and progressive career in nursing education, Dr. Tilghman routinely conveys to her students the “myriad of opportunities” a career in nursing offers.
Dr. Tilghman has served as a Middle States site visitor, Principal Investigator for research grants and an Associate Dean for Nursing.
The announcement as one of Maryland’s Top 100 Women is recognition for the decades of work and commitment to student success. There was a record number of 435 women nominated this year.
“Maryland’s Top 100 Women have achieved amazing accomplishments in their careers, but to be honored as a Top 100 Woman requires more than just career success,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “She must be an exemplary citizen, committed to her community, creating change and growing the next generation of leaders through active mentoring. The Daily Record is pleased to recognize these leaders.”
