(INDIANAPOLIS) The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) is accepting applications through 3 January 2016 for its Nurse Faculty Leadership Academy (NFLA). STTI’s International Leadership Institute administers the academy leadership development program thanks to a generous grant from The Elsevier Foundation.

The NFLA is a prestigious, highly selective 20-month leadership development experience that pairs high-potential nurses in faculty roles at colleges and universities with experienced nurse mentors who have demonstrated success as faculty leaders. Seventy-eight percent of scholars from the most recent cohort self-reported receiving a new position or promotion since enrolling in the NFLA, and the Leadership Practices Inventory for academy participants increased by 13 percent during the 20-month cohort.

NFLA is designed to:

  • Facilitate personal leadership development
  • Foster academic career success
  • Promote nurse faculty retention and satisfaction
  • Cultivate high performing, supportive work environments in academe

“We at the Elsevier Foundation are proud to have supported this program from its pilot cohort through this coming session in 2016-2017,” said Elsevier Foundation Executive Director David Ruth. “Along with the faculty advisors, mentors, and past scholars, we are also grateful that this partnership continues to be successful. The nursing profession will benefit from these scholars as they become nurse leaders and pass along their experiences from the Nurse Faculty Leadership Academy to the next generation of nurse professionals.”

“As the global organization of choice for nurses, STTI is deeply committed to developing nurses as faculty leaders and future deans,” said STTI President Hester C. Klopper, PhD, MBA, RN, RM, FANSA, FAAN. “The growth that Nurse Faculty Leadership Academy scholars achieve over the course of the academy is remarkable and has a positive impact on their institutions and their professional careers.”

For more than 90 years, STTI has honored the best and brightest women and men in nursing. The honor society provides its members with exclusive programs, resources, and opportunities such as those offered through the International Leadership Institute, including the NFLA.

Prospective mentor/mentee (scholar) pairs may submit applications for the new NFLA cohort through 3 January 2016. The 2016-2017 cohort will begin in March 2016. Program details, including information about identifying a potential mentor or mentee, are available at www.nursingsociety.org/nfla

    The first successful usage in a production vehicle began in Japan by the mid-1990s. Dr. Shohei Itoh and Masahiko Miyaki of the Denso Corporation, a Japanese automotive parts manufacturer, developed the Common Rail fuel system for heavy duty vehicles and turned it into practical use on their ECD-U2 common-rail system mounted on the Hino Rising Ranger truck and sold for general use in 1995.[3] Denso claims the first commercial high pressure common rail system in 1995.[4]Modern common rail systems, whilst working on the same principle sensor are governed by an engine control unit (ECU) which opens each injector electronically rather than mechanically. This was extensively prototyped in the 1990s with collaboration between Magneti Marelli,Centro Ricerche Fiat and Elasis. After research and development by the Fiat Group, the design was acquired by the German companyRobert Bosch GmbH for completion of development and refinement for mass-production Common Rail Nozzle . In hindsight, the sale appeared to be a tactical error for Fiat, as the new technology proved to be highly profitable. The Common Rail Injector Valve had little choice but to sell, however, as it was in a poor financial state at the time and lacked the resources to complete development on its own.[5] In 1997 they extended its use for passenger cars Common Rail Injector . The first passenger car that used the common rail system was the 1997 model Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD,[6] and later on that same year Mercedes-Benz C 220 CDI.Common Rail Shim & Gasket kit have been used in marine and locomotive applications for some time. The Cooper-Bessemer GN-8 (circa 1942) is an example of a hydraulically operated common rail diesel engine, also known as a modified common rail.
