Lubbock & Austin, Texas – Honor Society Launches Faculty Retention Program
Sunday, June 27th, 2010
The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), with support from The Elsevier Foundation, is piloting the Nurse Faculty Mentored Leadership Development (NFMLD) program. This initiative is focused on building and retaining the next generation of nurse faculty through mentored leadership development.
Research shows that new nurse faculty who have worked successfully with a mentor have higher job satisfaction and increased promotions and mobility than those without mentors. Mentored nurse faculty also are more productive in obtaining competitive grants, leading professional organizations and publishing.
