Please join the Pennsylvania Action Coalition (PA-AC), The National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC), and Geisinger on Wednesday, June 14, 2023 from 12:00 - 3:00 pm ET for the Clinical Faculty and Preceptor Academy (CFPA) Summit. The Summit will take place at the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City in Arlington, Virginia. This event is open to all and will be free of charge.
This event will be an opportunity to engage in discussion around the advancement of training, preparation, and availability of clinical nursing faculty and preceptors. We look forward to sharing updates from the CFPA program and plans for future rollout. We hope to foster dialogue around the priorities related to developing a curriculum that will better support clinical nursing faculty and preceptors. Please register separately for the National Forum of State Nursing Workforce Centers’ Annual Conference, taking place on June 12 – 14, 2023 at the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City in Arlington, Virginia.
About the CFPA Project: The Pennsylvania Action Coalition (PA-AC), a program of National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC), and Geisinger have partnered to address nursing faculty and instructor shortages by creating Nurse Education, Practice, Quality, and Retention Clinical Faculty and Preceptor Academies (NEPQR-CFPAs). The collaborative will execute the program with funds awarded by the U.S Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), CDFA#93.359.
The purpose of the NEPQR-CFPA is to take steps to fill the faculty/instructor gap in schools of nursing and increase nursing workforce retention by leveraging staff nurses to participate as skilled preceptors and clinical instructors. The PA-AC and Geisinger, alongside numerous academic and health system partners, will build academic-clinical-community partnerships that develop and implement comprehensive and self-guided nurse education training curricula. The project will focus on HHS Region 3 (including Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C.) to build a formal nurse education training curriculum to train clinical faculty and preceptors.
The agenda will be posted here soon!
