The Invest in Nursing grant has had great success over the past three years in the partnership between UNC Chapel Hill School of Nursing and Piedmont Health Services, Inc., with three cohorts of Student Scholars from UNC Chapel Hill, and with three cohorts of Faculty Fellows from across the State of North Carolina. This program is a time-limited grant funded opportunity, provided by the Health Resources and Services Administration, and will no longer continue programming in this current iteration after the 2021-2022 cohort year. It is our hope that other educational entities will use Invest in Nursing as a blueprint for implementing similar programming. Reach Out
Invest in Nursing is excited to announce the selection of eight Faculty Fellows for our third cohort. These nurse faculty members hold positions at schools of nursing from across the state of North Carolina. The fellowship is a one-year program consisting of on-site visits, distance-based workshops, resources, and an innovative educational project. There will be a combination of group instruction, experiential workshops, networking, and mentorship opportunities aimed at improving the knowledge skills and abilities of nurse faculty around leadership development, relationship-building, understanding self and others, as well as improving educational excellence for research and scholarship.
