"The (FLN) network fills a void in the nurse educator community by providing an opportunity for colleagues across the U.S. to discuss issues that are of importance to faculty. The network’s list serve is a great communication tool, where faculty can share ideas and resources. Additionally, the annual educational program addresses topics of interest and provides practical information for the faculty to take back to their home institution."

Faculty Leadership Network (FLN)

The Faculty Leadership Network provides a forum for nursing faculty to explore real world issues, pose pedagogy questions, and exchange ideas related to teaching and curriculum in professional nursing education.
