Faculty Innovating for Nursing Education
The vision for FINE: Creating Excellence, Locally and Globally is to:
Invent the future of nursing education by:
- Equipping nurses who will become faculty or Nursing Professional Development generalists/specialists as educators, scholars, leaders, and/or researchers with skills to prepare learners for practice in increasingly interdisciplinary, interprofessional, international, and technologically sophisticated health care settings.
- Offering orientation and continuing education programs for preceptors, nurses in practice, adjunct and fulltime faculty to ensure the use of cutting edge, evidence-based educational practices across a variety of learning environments.
- Developing scholars and researchers to generate and translate education science to improve nursing education, clinical practice, healthcare systems, and patient outcomes.
- Advancing educator preparation initiatives to lead educational innovation to improve health outcomes locally, national, and globally.
