Invest In Nursing Faculty Fellowship invests in nurse educators

The Invest in Nursing Faculty Fellowship at UNC Chapel Hill School of Nursing was created to meet needs of nursing faculty for pre-licensure students in North Carolina, USA. This program is funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration through the NEPQR-RNPC grant.

While fellowships for faculty and educator development exist across the country in various disciplines little is available for the professional development of nursing faculty. This IIN Faculty Fellowship was created to build upon NC nurse educator capacities in 4 core competencies: Scholarship, Teaching & Learning, Leadership, and Building Community Partnerships.

Well-qualified nurse faculty are crucial to transmitting knowledge and maintaining relationships among students, public health nursing leaders and staff, community partners, and stakeholders who work in collaboration with clinical and community agencies.
