Please see below for general information on the Invest in Nursing Faculty Fellowship.
Purpose: To provide nursing faculty with top notch continuing education and resources around leadership, scholarship, teaching, and building community relationships, so they can deliver high-quality learning experiences to nursing students.

Program Scope: The Invest in Nursing Faculty Fellowship is a one-year program consisting of three on-site visits, two to two and a half days each in length, as well as on-line workshops, leadership resources, and an Innovative Project. There will be a combination of group instruction, experiential workshops, networking, and mentorship opportunities aimed at providing the learning experiences necessary to excel as leaders; both in the classroom and in promoting and fostering clinical partnerships. Sessions will focus on professional leadership, scholarship, teaching, and building community relationships.
