FNU Diversity PRIDE Meeting!

Tuesday, July 25th | 6:45pm (est)

PRIDE MEETING: Engaging in Nurse Leadership
PRESENTER: Katrin Moskowitz, RN, DNP Class #14, FNU CNEP #129

Looking at the future, healthcare industries see the evolving needs of patients and are focused on providing nurses with the needed leadership skills required to meet the growing demands of providing primary care to an increasingly diverse patient landscape.  This session will open discussions on ways the Duke-Johnson & Johnson Nurse Leadership Program, located in Durham NC, is preparing nurses to lead nurse-managed practices and advocate for effective new practice models for underserved, underrepresented, and marginalized patient populations.  Attendees will have the opportunity to reflect and share their thoughts and goals on how to achieve positive outcomes in their professions through nurse-leadership.

Katrin Moskowitz is a FNU Alumni and Diversity PRIDE member dedicated to improving community health as a Family Nurse Practitioner in Torrington, Connecticut.  Katrin was awarded the 2016-2017 Fellows into the Duke-Johnson & Johnson Nurse Leadership Program at Duke University.  Read more about Katrin here.

Important updates to Clinical Site Approval Forms!

Dear Students,

There have been recent, exciting changes at FNU related to Clinical Planning making the process easier and more transparent for students, faculty and staff.
If you have already submitted paper CSAFs to your RCFs, these will be processed as usual and the information will be submitted to My Clinical Plan. You will be able to view the progress on My Clinical Plan as they are processed by the RCFs and Credentialing. Please do not resubmit the same site/preceptors through the Community Map if you have already sent the information in the old paper format.

After April 4, 2017 ALL site and preceptor requests must be submitted using the new process utilizing the electronic CSAFs; these will link automatically within My Clinical Plan upon submission and review by RCFs and Credentialing.

The RCFs will assist you with this process and there are comprehensive resources from Credentialing including videos and information related to the Community Map, CSAF and My Clinical Plan. 
These new resources are in the Portal Page (Department/Credentialing Department). You can review the new process here (you will need to login to the Portal first with your FNU credentials to access these resources).

There are multiple upcoming opportunities over the next few weeks to drop in virtually and work with faculty and staff on this new process.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Dr. Jane Houston and Dr. Irma Jordan, Clinical Directors
