Carole Pomarico, an assistant professor at Fairfield University's School of Nursing, has received an award from the Connecticut League of Nursing for her support of life-long learning in the profession, the university announced.

A Fairfield resident, Pomarico received the league's Jane E. Murdock Life Long Learning Award at the organization's leadership conference in Portland recently.

Pomarico has been a nurse for more than 25 years, the university said, and her current responsibilities include recruiting and advising non-traditional students.
