Lancaster Community College, recently was notified that she has been accepted as an Ambassador for the National League for Nursing.

Her duties as an ambassador will include encouraging other colleagues to participate in NLN programs and apply for research grants, keeping a line of communication open between DSLCC and the NLN, and providing feedback about the organization and its programs, among other duties. McAllister, a 2000 graduate of the DSLCC Nursing Program, received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Old Dominion University in 2003, and a Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Phoenix in 2010.
