Due September 112022-2023 ANA Mentorship Program Enrollment Deadline

August 19, 2022

The ANA Mentorship Program recognizes that although nurses share the same profession, we each have our own unique career goals and challenges. Through this program, we will filter potential matches to find an experienced Mentor for you. Completing the 8-month program allows you to go deep, to work on difficult challenges that can’t be solved overnight, all without feeling rushed. 

It gives you time to develop a meaningful mentoring relationship that you can lean on when times might be tough. If you’re ready to chart your own professional path with the guidance of a Mentor, dive into the possibilities of ANA's Mentorship Program by enrolling today! Enrollment period ends September 11, 2022.

Nurse Educator Research Participant Opportunity

August 23. 2022

You are invited to take part in a study focusing on political astuteness and self-efficacy of undergraduate nurse educators. The purpose of this study is to describe the political astuteness and political self-efficacy in undergraduate nurse educators and explore the possible correlation between political astuteness and political self-efficacy in the nurse educator. Additionally, the possible correlation between demographic factors and political self-efficacy will be explored. The political self-efficacy is an indirect measure of the nurse educator’s ability to teach health policy to undergraduate nursing students and the results of this study can be used to improve content delivery to your students.

Because many programs thread policy and legal content through their program, I am asking you to participate in this study even if you do not explicitly teach health policy courses.

Participation in this study involves completing two surveys as well as providing some demographic information including your level of education and years in nursing. I estimate these surveys will take less than 15 minutes to complete. The information is collected in a confidential manner without identification of you or your school.

Inclusion criteria include:

  1. Nurse educators in the United States employed full-time or at least 50% part-time in a nationally accredited nursing program.

  2. Although they may hold some administrative duties in the nursing school, these faculty spend greater than 50% of their workload instructing undergraduate nursing students.

  3. Nurse educators must be teaching undergraduate nursing content using face to face, online, or hybrid modalities. This includes classroom or didactic and clinical courses

  4. Nurse educators must hold a graduate degree in nursing.

  5. Nurse educators must be able to communicate in English.

Those faculty interested in participating can click the following link, which will bring you to the consent form and surveys. https://unco.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_esVVhTUbvIFQ3uC

Thank you for assisting with this important research.

Sincerely,

  2. Allow Boards/Director within their lawful authority, to pursue opportunities and coordinate with each other to protect people and entities who are providing, assisting, seeking, or obtaining reproductive health care in Colorado; and
