Faculty Practice and Scholarship

In addition to supporting the conduct of traditional research, the College supports faculty participation in the scholarship of practice. These activities focus on priorities such as:

  • Facilitating transitions of nursing graduates into new practice roles
  • Quality- or process-improvement activities
  • The development of nursing expertise in targeted areas
  • Program or outcome evaluations
  • Evidence-based practice

Many of our nurse faculty members also engage in practice scholarship through leadership roles in local and national nursing (or health-related) organizations such as the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, American Association of Critical Care Nurses, American Heart Association, American Public Health Association and Sigma Theta Tau International.
