​​Nurse Faculty Leadership Academy (NFLA) 

Academy Impact

The NFLA turns nurse educators into true change agents and aims to decrease faculty attrition. Research shows that those who take part in a mentoring program have higher job satisfaction, are better able to obtain grants, can more successfully lead professional organizations, and are more prolific publishers of scholarly books and journal articles.

Since 2009, NFLA participants include 15 scholars, their mentors and seven faculty representing 29 universities, 15 states and provincesand four countries, including Australia, Canada, Thailand, and the United States.

Post-academy evaluatons of NFLA scholars examine career accomplishments at the organzational, community and professional levels. Activities measured include changes in job positions, professional achievements and participation in leadership activities. It is important to note that 100% of scholars met their stated goals and objectives by the completion of the program.
"I'm such a different person than when I started. I wasn't thinking about leadership; I wanted to bring my clinical  into the classroom. It really opened my eyes. If you are going to push quality, you have to integrate leadership and scholarship."
Michael T. Clark, Scholar​
