Development Opportunities for Faculty

There are many development opportunities to assist nurse educators in developing the necessary skills to teach in complex educational and health care systems. Many of these development opportunities align education and practice and enhance leadership development for senior administrators.  In an effort to help strengthen our programs of nursing, we have compiled a list of websites where faculty and program administrators can determine what educational offerings are available to assist with their program needs.  Please note that this list is not all inclusive of offerings throughout the U.S., nor does the KBN advocate or recommend any one professional development opportunity over another.  We will continue to add weblinks as we learn about them.  We hope you find this compilation useful.

Simulation Resources 

The Kentucky Administrative Regulations require that a program of nursing have adequate fiscal, human, and material resources to support simulation activities.  The simulation activities are to be managed by a nurse faculty member who is academically and experientially qualified in the use of simulation, both in its pedagogical and technical aspects.  In addition, Faculty, both didactic and clinical that utilize simulation in the Program of Nursing must have training in the use of simulation and engage in on-going professional development in the use of simulation.

The Education Consultants at the Kentucky Board of Nursing have compiled a list of resources and web links to assist a Program of Nursing with achieving compliance with the regulatory requirements governing simulation.  Many of these resources have been recommended by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing. The resources have been divided into articles, tools and web links.  Please note that this list is not all inclusive of offerings throughout the U.S., nor does the KBN advocate or recommend any one resource or web link over another.
