UW’s Bodily Receives WNA 2020 Inspiring Our Future Nurses Award

David Bodily is an associate lecturer with the UW School of Nursing.David Bodily is this year’s recipient of the Wyoming Nurses Association’s (WNA) Inspiring Our Future Nurses Award, given annually to a WNA member nursing instructor who has been a positive influence on the future nurses of Wyoming.

Bodily, an associate lecturer in the University of Wyoming’s Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing, is program director for the school’s online Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) curriculum program called Revolutionizing Nursing Education in Wyoming (ReNEW), and RN-BSN nursing programs.

As a seasoned instructor, Bodily “embodies the faculty role that involves teaching, advising, service and professional development, and has had an invaluable impact on our future Wyoming baccalaureate-prepared nurses,” says UW School of Nursing Dean Sherrill Smith.

Smith points out that Bodily has been instrumental in developing and teaching courses in the ReNEW program, which is a shared curriculum across all Wyoming community colleges and UW nursing programs.

Bodily collaborates with community college leaders to encourage associate degree nursing students to continue their education at UW to achieve their BSN at their own pace and convenience.

Kimberly Raska-Miller, a senior lecturer of nursing and pre-licensure programs director, adds that Bodily pushes students to “think outside the box,” and is “highly knowledgeable about online learning modalities and technology,” providing technology support to both students and faculty.
