Title:
Faculty Leadership to Enhance a Family Nurse Practitioner Curriculum to Meet the 2010 Recommended Competencies for Older Adult Care for the Family CNP and Women's Health CNP
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) Nurse practitioner faculty are obligated to stay abreast of mandatory changes in education, licensure, certification and accreditation of their programs. Part of maintaining currency involves being aware of all new NP educational competencies, some of which are not always initially recognized as critical by faculty peers.  During 2010, adult-gerontology competencies were released for adult-gerontological, family and women’s health NPs.  The author led her peers to recognize changes needed due to the 2010 Recommended Competencies for Older Adult Care for the Family and Women’s Health CNPs.  This project involved the development and utilization of the author’s personal leadership skills to obtain the buy-in needed to instigate an institutional wide curricular change.  To guide her project implementation, the author utilized principles from Kouzes and Posner’s The Leadership Challenge.  This poster iterates how the author clarified institutional values, set the example, envisioned the future, enlisted the support of other co-champions and experts, challenged the longstanding processes by taking risks, and enabled her peers to act in a manner that would resonate with the requirements of the new educational competencies.  The poster includes the administrative and leadership steps employed to instigate the beginnings of a curricular change plan that will be ongoing and unfolding for years to come. Additionally, the personal leadership journey of this novice NP educator will be described.  The impact upon East Carolina University’s ANP and FNP curricula, the satisfaction and experience of NP faculty, and the impact upon the ANP/FNP students who will serve older adults with increased clinical competence will also be addressed.
