It is with great pleasure that we announce that Dr. Aluem Tark, our Associate Professor of Nursing/Assistant Dean of Nursing Education Assessment and Evaluation, has been named a winner of the National League for Nursing Nurse Educator of the Year Award.

Clinically, she is actively practicing as a board-certified family nurse practitioner with over 13 years’ experience in direct patient care. Her clinical background includes oncology/ hematology and bone marrow transplant practitioner, as well as Palliative and End-of-Life care.

Dr. Tark graduated from Columbia University School of Nursing, where she completed Master’s in Science, Family Nurse Practitioner Program, and a PhD program with her research focused on Palliative Care, End-of-Life care and the evaluation/ impact of Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST). She then completed her post-doctoral research fellowship in Pain and Associated Symptoms research at University of Iowa. As a research scientist, Dr. Tark’s numerous publications examined the impact of advance care planning in geriatric population and the impact of POLST completion on both individual and state level outcomes.
