Purpose and Overview

As faculty roles and expectations continually evolve, the core tenets of scholarship serve to guide nurse educators in their professional development.

In addition, the Faculty Professional Role Development Program:

  • Content is mapped to the WHO Nurse Educator Core Competencies.
  • Can be completed as an entire program or as individual courses that interest you. 
  • Features interactive knowledge checks, downloadable resources, and other engaging features.
