Faculty Development


The College of Nursing is dedicated to ensuring that the faculty are provided with continuing professional development opportunities. Our faculty development unit offers a wide variety of services. This includes meeting with all faculty on a regular basis to focus on their individualized development plan and to provide the tools they need to advance in the areas of teaching, scholarship and practice.

Development Opportunities

College of Nursing

The College of Nursing Office of Faculty and Community Affairs coordinates faculty development opportunities comprising monthly lectures, journal article discussions, and learning communities. All events are complimentary to faculty members. Continuing Education (CE) credit is available for Grand Rounds and Journal Club.

  • Grand Rounds: The purpose of Grand Rounds is to provide learning opportunities for faculty to meet licensure requirements and promote learning and scholarship.
  • Journal Club: The purpose of Journal Club is to review and critically appraise evidence-based teaching strategies and discuss implications of these strategies for clinical practice, classroom and online teaching.
  • College of Nursing Learning Communities: The purpose of the Learning Communities is to provide faculty with development opportunities to strengthen their publishing, presentation, and leadership skills. Contact the Faculty and Community Affairs office to join the Learning Community.
