New Faculty Orientation

The OFA is responsible for the orientation of new faculty members.  New faculty members will complete a robust 10 day orientation to the university and GSN.  During this time the new faculty member will have opportunities to meet with GSN leadership, review the GSN mission and vision, explore policies and procedures, develop a curriculum vitae (CV) that is consistent with the GSN and university, observe faculty lectures and complete any requirements for appointment to the university.

Continuing Faculty Development

A primary mission of the OFA is to support continuing faculty development. There are a variety of activities sponsored by the GSN OFA, the university and Walter Reed National Military Medical campus.

The GSN OFA sponsored events:

Nursing Academic Grand Rounds: These offerings will occur biannually and are opportunity for faculty and invited guests to share innovative teaching methods.

GSN Preceptor Training Series: (Coming Soon) These are short multimedia presentations that review essential preceptor topics such as:

  • How to set specific learning goals
  • How to create a supportive learning climate
  • How to design a lecture or small group teaching method
  • How to provide feedback to a student
  • How to recognize a learner in distress

New Faculty Training: Will be individually developed to meet the needs of the faculty member.
