Title : Building nursing faculty capacity in Africa


The presentation will focus on the work completed in several African countries that assessed the capacity of faculty in schools of nursing.  The in-country assessment included both qualitative and quantitative data that examined not only faculty knowledge and skills but also faculty confidence.  Results of the initial assessment will be shared as well as the plan that was created and implemented based on assessment results.  Handouts will include content slides as well as assessments/tests.  Recommendations for continued support of faculty will be presented.
