Experienced Nurse Faculty Leadership Academy

The 2010 Institute of Medicine report The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health calls for health organizations, including nursing organizations and nursing schools, “to provide nurses greater opportunities to gain leadership skills and put them into practice.” In an effort to advance excellence in nursing education, the Sigma/Chamberlain College of Nursing Center for Excellence in Nursing Education has developed the Experienced Nurse Faculty Leadership Academy (Academy).


The Academy is a 12-month leadership development experience designed to meet the following program goals:

  • Further academic career development and success
  • Promote personal and professional leadership development
  • Develop and implement a leadership progression plan
  • Expand the Scholar’s influence within the sponsoring academic institution, the community, and the profession in the context of teaching, scholarship, or service
  • Demonstrate leadership and planned change skills in planning and implementing selected leadership projects that advance nursing education
  • Promote experienced nurse faculty retention in academe 

The Academy is designed for mid-career nursing faculty, with at least (7) seven years of full time employment in a teaching role, who wish to increase their leadership acumen and develop or increase the skill sets essential for success in a leadership role. Preference will be given to doctorally prepared nurse educators and active Sigma members.
