New Faculty Orientation

Four-Week New Faculty Orientation

Take this four-week, flexible course right from your home or office.

In an interview with Hospitals & Health Networks (2016), Dr. Peter Buerhaus, a health economist and professor of nursing, predicts that one-third of the nursing workforce will retire in the next 10 years. That includes nursing faculty at the same time that the demand for nursing graduates increases exponentially. As we talked to deans and program chairs lately, one of the common themes is that about 50% of faculty have joined the nursing faculty within the last one or two years. Many of these new faculty are coming to academia as expert practitioners and are struggling to make the transition to become expert educators. Therefore, many of these new faculty are teaching the way they were taught because that is their only frame of reference. At the same time the student population brings multiple generations into the same classroom with different learning styles and needs. Are we creating the perfect storm?

NurseTim®, Inc. offers a four-week online faculty orientation each year at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters. The goal of the orientation is to provide new faculty with a skill set to facilitate their success. This course is relevant for new full-time faculty, adjunct faculty, and clinical and preceptor faculty. Time commitment for faculty participants is estimated at three hours per week.

The course facilitator is a seasoned NurseTim® consultant who brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise as a nurse educator.

This online course is facilitator-guided and will include:

  • Asynchronous and synchronous learning opportunities and activities.
  • Nationally and internationally recognized nurse educators.
  • Interaction with new and seasoned faculty from around the country.
  • Optional 30-minute synchronous live online meetings weekly.
  • Recorded synchronous sessions.

Course objectives

By the end of the online course new faculty will be able to:

  • Articulate strategies to develop effective student-faculty relationships.
  • Implement effective student-assessment tools.
  • Discuss the legal issues addressed by nursing faculty.
