SON Clinical Associate Professor Meg Zomorodi, RN, CNL, PhD, was chosen to participate in the 2012-13 Nurse Faculty Leadership Academy. By pairing new nurse educators with mentors and NFLA expert faculty members, this 20-month intensive program seeks to develop leadership skills in new nurse faculty.
Dr. Zomorodi chose Dr. Judith Halstead, PhD, RN, ANEF, FAAN, from the Indiana University School of Nursing as her mentor because of her expertise in online education. The two will work together to develop ideas for an innovative, engaging online Clinical Nurse Leader program at UNC and revise two of the program’s courses.
The NFLA was developed by the International Leadership Institute under nursing honor society Sigma Theta Tau International with funding from the Elsevier Foundation. The Academy chose 16 fellows from all over the nation to participate in its 2012-13 program. By participating in the program, Dr. Zomorodi will gain unbiased perspectives from schools that face similar challenges, giving her valuable insight into leadership and course curriculum development.
