Description/Overview: The Nurse Faculty Leadership Academy (NFLA) is an intense international leadership development experience designed to facilitate personal leadership development, promote nurse faculty retention and satisfaction, foster academic career success, and cultivate high performing, supportive work environments in academe. Scholars in the NFLA are selected through a competitive process and work throughout the twenty two month experience within a triad that includes a leadership mentor and faculty advisor. The academy curriculum is built upon the foundation of three domains: individual leadership development, advancing nursing education through leadership of team projects, and the Scholars’ expanded scope of influence within their sponsoring academic institutions, the community, and the profession. Outcomes within each of the academy’s three domains achieved by the Scholars of the first cohort will be presented. The impact of the NFLA and its relationship to the future of leadership in nursing education will be described.
