Faculty Development Workshops

More workshop dates coming soon

Moving to implement the 2021 Essentials requires a thoughtful, coordinated approach to transitioning to competency-based education and assessment. AACN is hosting a series of regional hands-on workshops for faculty seeking strategies, resources, and solutions to adapting their undergraduate and graduate programs to meet the new competency expectations. Presenters will provide an overview of competency-based education (CBE), compare CBE to traditional teaching and learning, and discuss how CBE improves clinical judgment and prepares nurse graduates for clinical practice. Seasoned academic leaders will share their expertise and key principles for innovative course design while addressing aspects of the faculty role related to creating an active learning environment, robust clinical teaching (including a focus on simulation and coaching), and effective student evaluation. AACN’s many resources for supporting Essentials implementation will be reviewed, and frequently asked questions addressed.

Who Should Attend:

Faculty, curriculum specialist, deans/directors, and nursing school staff engaged in Essentials implementation and the transition to competency-based nursing education. Registration is limited to 160 participants per each event.
