Purpose: To provide faculty with top notch education and resources around leadership, community collaboration, and curriculum development, so they can deliver high-quality learning experiences to nursing students.

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 and curriculum development.

Program Schedule: The 2019-2020 fellows must be able to attend both on-site sessions to participate in the program. The dates are August 12th – 14th, 2019 and May 18th – 20th, 2020.
