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.

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.
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.
