Since their founding, these groups and their student leaders have been recognized with multiple President’s Service Award from NYU. His efforts to foster salience in nursing is grounded on his firm belief that a well-rounded education is rooted on the fundamental patterns of knowing. Dr. Lim implemented the Nursing Humanities project at NYU to provide a qualitatively robust extra-curricular programming in the arts and culture to enhance patient-centered care competencies of future nurses.
NYU has recognized Dr. Lim with various student-voted teaching and education excellence awards over the years. He is also one of the founders of New York City Men in Nursing, the premier organization that provides a forum for all nurses in NYC. He is responsible for organizing a monthly professional development event since 2014. Currently he teaches Nursing Pharmacotherapeutics, Adult and Elder courses, and the Critical Care Nursing elective.
His work as a Nurse Educator in a Magnet-designated hospital provides sustainable staff-focused educational support. He is particularly interested in bridging gaps in nurse engagement and practice excellence. Dr. Lim has published numerous peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, and web-based learning modules on an array of topics ranging from clinical practice, geriatric nursing, nursing education, LGBT health disparities, reflective practice, men in nursing, Martha Rogers and Florence Nightingale among others.
