The group bestowed the title "Honorary Registered Nurse" on Herrington, who has provided 17 years of student advising and academic guidance to the nursing department. She will retire at the conclusion of the spring semester.

Susan Foster, chair of the advisory committee, said, "Dr. Herrington has been a masterful asset to the ASU Nursing Department." She frequently teaches nursing students enrolled in her biology courses, as well.
