Abstract

There is a need to find excellence in education, particularly in the demanding specialty of nursing education. The purpose of this study was to revisit and expand upon Rossetti’s previous work of Factors That Make Outstanding Professors Successful: A Connection to Inspiration (2002). A qualitative study of Northern Illinois University’s (NIU) recipients of the Presidential Teaching Professorship award essays to find factors that make professors excellent in education. A poster of the literature review was presented on April 6th, 2020 at the School of Nursing Honors Poster Day. 13 essays were collected and analyzed, and the following themes were identified: Creating the Teaching Milieu, Passion and Enthusiasm for Teaching, and Providing Learning Experiences. The study was limited by the COVID-19 outbreak and the rest of the essays will be analyzed once obtained.
