This three year initiative will increase the number of masters prepared nurses with the knowledge and competencies to assume the role of nurse faculty at nursing education programs throughout the greater Worcester community. This project is closely aligned with the goals of the Fairlawn Foundation by providing a project that is a) dedicated to improving the health care of the Worcester area by educating and training the local nursing workforce; and b) increasing the capacity of nursing programs to address the shortfall of highly trained nursing faculty.
