3032: Got Faculty? Transitioning Advance Practice Nurses into Faculty Roles
Due to the critical nursing faculty shortage nursing schools are forced to turn away qualified applicants (AACN, 2010). Partnering academia with APNís from PMH practice fills the critical nursing faculty shortage, is a natural extension of a practice role and addresses the recent IOM report (2010) that emphasizes nurses practicing to the full extent of their education and training. This presentation will discuss strategies designed to promote and ease the transition of APNís to PMH faculty roles.
Speakers: Grace Wlasowicz, PhD, RN; Debra Kloesz MS, RN, CNE-BC
