Faculty Fellowship

The application for the 2020-2021 cohort will be open on February 15th, and will be close on April 15th, 2020. 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. This will in turn benefit community organizations, stakeholders, residents of North Carolina, and improve the overall quality of nursing practice.

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.

Program Schedule: The 2020-2021 applicants must be able to attend ALL THREE on-site sessions to participate in the program. The dates for the 2020-2021 sessions are as follows:

Compensation: The on-site workshops and accommodations during the conferences will be covered by the program. Faculty Fellows will be responsible for their own travel expenses.
