Frontier Nursing University Named a “2013 Great College to Work For®”
Recognition by The Chronicle of Higher Education puts Frontier Nursing University in elite company
HYDEN, KY – Frontier Nursing University is one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to a new survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education, the nation’s most important source of news about colleges and universities.
The results, released this week in The Chronicle’s sixth annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of more than 44,000 employees at 300 colleges and universities. In all, only 97 of the 300 institutions achieved “Great College to Work For” recognition for specific best practices and policies.
FNU won honors in 9 categories this year and was also named a 2013 Honor Roll Institution for being rated highly across multiple categories:
- Job satisfaction
- Work-life balance
- Teaching Environment
- Confidence in Senior Leadership
- Collaborative Governance
- Professional/Career Development Programs
- Compensation & Benefits
- Respect and Appreciation
- Supervisor/Department Chair Relationship
“This is a very satisfying affirmation for FNU. We are constantly striving to make FNU a community which values the needs and contributions of every individual. In that sense everyone at FNU helps to make this a great place to work,” said FNU President & Dean Susan Stone, DNSc, CNM, FAAN, FACNM.
“The institutions that the Great Colleges program recognizes provide innovative educational experiences – while also offering their employees outstanding workplace experiences – and we are eager to help readers learn more about them, ” said Liz McMillen, The Chronicle’s editor.
The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies from each institution, and a survey administered to faculty, administrators, and professional support staff. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition was the employee feedback.
To administer the survey and analyze the results, The Chronicle worked with ModernThink LLC, a strategic human capital consulting firm that has conducted numerous “Best Places to Work” programs, surveying hundreds of thousands of employees nationwide.
Great Colleges to Work For is one of the largest and most respected workplace recognition programs in the country.
