Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences, the area’s preeminent institution for the health care field, today announced the selection of Lisa Albert to the Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty Program at Parkinson’s Foundation. 




Albert, the college’s three-year BSN program director, is one of just 35 educators selected for the elite training program nationwide. The Visiting Nurse Faculty Program is a prestigious and rigorous 40-hour course that trains key leaders at top schools across the country to educate nursing students on how to care for patients with Parkinson’s disease. The Parkinson’s Foundation projects that the number of people living with the disease will double in the next 20 years, and is seeking to address this pandemic growth by proactively equipping educators to prepare nursing students to care for those affected. 



“I’m honored to be accepted into this distinguished program,” Albert said. “Having the opportunity to learn and dialogue with educators across the country to address this growing health concern will be invaluable. Nurses have a significant impact on their patients’ well-being and quality of life, and as nurse-educators it is our duty to utilize as much research and hands-on experience as we can to best prepare students. I look forward to learning a great deal through this experience and bringing a breadth of new knowledge back to our students.”



Upon completion of the course, Albert will join an elite group of 228 alumni – expanding the network of educators equipped to develop course content, deliver lectures and provide clinical mentorship on Parkinson’s in undergraduate schools of nursing. 



“Lisa is an esteemed member of our nursing faculty and is deeply committed to preparing our students to help their patients,” said Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences President Dr. Mary Grace Simcox. “We are proud of her ambition to continuously elevate our curriculum and provide our students with enhanced learning opportunities. It’s an honor to have one of our educators selected by the Parkinson’s Foundation and we look forward to learning from her experience.”



Albert will attend the Nurse Faculty Program at the Weill Cornell Medicine: New York Presbyterian Hospital. She currently is the Program Director for Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences’ unique three-year Bachelor of Sciences Nursing program, the region’s single accelerated BSN program for students.
