Faculty Preparation Program – Part 2
The Faculty Preparation Program worked to develop, implement and evaluate an education curriculum that integrates education and faculty preparation into the nursing clinical master’s-level and doctoral programs to prepare nurses with advanced clinical expertise as faculty/educators.
Upon graduation from the Faculty Preparation Program, each scholar became eligible for a financial incentive to teach at a New Jersey school of nursing. The incentive program began upon the completion of the first year as a faculty member and continued for three years. This effort helped the scholars increase the faculty capacity of New Jersey nursing programs and educate the next generation of the state’s nursing workforce.
