Virtual Nurse Training Programs Available

The MHA and the Michigan Health Council are partnering on two offerings designed to strengthen the nursing workforce. The Clinical Faculty Academy (CFA) is a virtual training program preparing nurses for the role of clinical instructors. The interactive training materials, based on adult learning theory, have been piloted, critically reviewed and are consistent with National League of Nursing clinical competencies. Education models include student learning in the clinical setting, clinical evaluation concepts and processes, dealing with difficult students and creating a positive learning environment.

The Nurse Preceptor Academy (NPA) is a virtual training program for nurses and allied health professionals to be able to acclimate new nurses, students and employees to the rigors of the hospital environment and validate competence, often resulting in reduced attrition. Nurses learn, at their own pace, more about critical thinking, workplace socialization and conflict resolution, and other issues

The CFA and the NPA are complimentary, all-inclusive, turnkey programs. To learn more about these offerings, contact Ana Hornburg at the Michigan Health Council. Members with questions can contact Erin Steward at the MHA.
