The School of Nursing holds mandatory Faculty Orientation a few times per year to assist new faculty (and returning faculty who are yet to attend) with their transition into the faculty role. Clinical faculty are also required to complete the online portion of orientation. Upon completion of the requirements, faculty will be eligible to receive an orientation stipend.
