They received the certification after passing the highly competitive and rigorous CNE examination to distinguish themselves as two of only 287 Certified Nurse Educators in all of the United States. The Certified Nurse Educator designation validates their expertise in both the fields of nursing and of education.“The Certified Nurse Educator Program serves to recognize excellence in the specialized area of nursing education,” said Dr. Gary F. Porter, Academic Vice President of Bergen Community College. “I congratulate Dr. Fressola and Professor Zaucha on their achievements. Bergen is indeed fortunate to have two Certified Nurse Educators on our faculty.”

She continues to work as an Emergency Trauma Nurse for the Hackensack University Medical Center.
