CFPA faculty and staff
CFPA Advisory Board
To develop the curriculum of the CFPA, the PA-AC assembled an advisory board that is reflective of diverse practice areas, academic pathways, geographic location and populations served. The CFPA Advisory Board includes 25 nursing experts who assist with providing current evidence-based knowledge, critical thinking and analysis. The advisory board oversees curriculum development, determines metrics for review and ensures that the course content is engaging, thoughtfully articulated and caters to a wide audience.
Geisinger and the PA-AC are working with the advisory board and its extensive network to:
- Foster dialogue around the program’s goals and outcomes
- Promote the implementation of the program
- Showcase the project as a model to bolster the nursing workforce
In the second year of the project, Geisinger employees across the health system will pilot and evaluate the curriculum. The CFPA Advisory Board will use lessons learned to prepare the program for implementation across HHS Region 3 in the third year.
Ultimately, the purpose of the collaboration is to work across the region to improve the training, preparation and availability of clinical nursing faculty and preceptors to better support nurses in advancing healthcare.
