Designed as a foundations course for new educators, this workshop promotes excellence in the advanced specialty role of the academic nurse educator while addressing the increasingly complex nature of the role. This workshop will address the many complexities to include faculty shortage, emphasis on diversity and inclusivity, civility, impact from a changing health care system, clinical practice - all within the art and science of nursing education. The unique policies governing student confidentiality, rights and responsibilities, and the policies governing the role of the faculty member in academia contribute to this unique vet vitally important role in the preparation of future nurses.
