- Academic Advisors
Academic advisors meet regularly with all students to provide support and guidance on university policies and procedures, to help you avail yourself of the university's many resources, and to ensure that you are making progress toward graduation. Each student is assigned an academic advisor with whom they will maintain a relationship from the point of admission to graduation.

Information about each of the faculty roles listed can be found below in the dropdown boxes.
- RCFs: Regional Clinical Faculty
Regional Clinical Faculty (RCFs) play a critical role in the clinical phase of your program. They provide guidance and support during clinical to both you and your preceptor(s). The RCF evaluates both the clinical site and preceptor to insure excellence before you begin your clinicals, and monitors / assesses your progress throughout the clinical experience.
Some common ways that you will engage your RCF include:
site identification (this is your responsibility, but the RCF is a valuable resource)
clinical site approval
Clinical Bound date selection
advising for clinical course registration
bi-weekly review of Typhon materials (time logs, self-evaluations, SOAP notes, etc.)
Your RCF is assigned according to geographical area and specialty track; a list can be found here. For more information about your RCF, including a brief profile and link to his/her curriculum vitae, search the Faculty Directory.
- Course Coordinators
Course Coordinators are responsible for the course's structure and content, teaching strategies, and evaluation methods. Course Coordinators maintain the course gradebooks and approve anything exceptional related to the course (e.g., Incomplete grades, deadline extensions, etc.) Course Coordinators are the first people to turn to if you have questions about the content of a course or if any issues arise during the term.
The names of your Course Coordinators can be found within your courses in Canvas, and a brief profile and link to their curriculum vitae can be found in the Faculty Directory.
- Course Faculty
Course Faculty provide instruction and evaluation of students enrolled in their courses. They provide feedback on student work and remain in communication with students throughout the duration of the course. For information on specific faculty, including their curriculum vitae (CV), visit the Faculty Directory.
- Clinical Site Facilitator
The Clinical Site Facilitator is a member of the FNU staff who can provide assistance to students during the site / preceptor identification process.
Here are ways that the Clinical Site Facilitator can help you:
Give you new tools and resources to navigate through your clinical search.
Help you understand the appropriate timeline for securing a preceptor and site.
Steer you in the right direction if you have etiquette concerns.
Guide you through the credentialing process slowly.
Provide a listening ear if you need to talk through issues that arise during the process.
Jamie Wheeler, Clinical Site Facilitator
Phone: (859) 251-4591
- Clinical Credentialing Coordinators
Each student has an assigned staff member dedicated to facilitating the clinical credentialing process for the students, their sites, and their preceptors. These individuals are assigned geographically, and a list can be found here. For more information please visit the Clinical Credentialing webpage.
- Associate Deans (AD)
The Associate Deans provide leadership and direction for their respective departments (FNP and CNEP/WH). MSN and PGC students may consult with your Associate Dean if you have special circumstances that may impact your academic progress, if you are considering switching tracks, if you need to pursue an Emergency Academic Hiatus, if you are thinking about withdrawing, and other related issues.
- Program Directors (PD)
Program Directors assume responsibility for the overall operation of their respective programs (Bridge, Psychiatric Mental Health, and DNP). Students in these programs may consult with your Program Director if you have special circumstances that may impact your academic progress, if you need to pursue an Emergency Academic Hiatus, if you are thinking of withdrawing, or if you need guidance about particular aspects of the program.
- Clinical Directors (CD)
The Clinical Directors ensure the effective implementation of the clinical experience for students, facilitating the role of the RCFs to provide academic engagement with you and your preceptors on a regular basis during your clinical practicum. Your Clinical Director may reach out to you if you there are issues affecting your clinical planning, clinical progression, or if any other issues arise during your clinical experience.
