Faculty Innovating for Nursing Education

The vision for FINE: Creating Excellence, Locally and Globally is to:

 Invent the future of nursing education by: 

  1. 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.   
  2. 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.
  3. Developing scholars and researchers to generate and translate education science to improve nursing education, clinical practice, healthcare systems, and patient outcomes.
  4. Advancing educator preparation initiatives to lead educational innovation to improve health outcomes locally, national, and globally.
