Many will also her commitment to the highest standards of nursing education, one expressed in her success in securing Villanova University’s Col - lege of Nursing’s repeated designation as a Center of Excellence by the National League for Nursing. Villanova’s alumni and suppor ters will remember her stead - fast support of its basketball Wildcats through all of the years of her deanship.
