Scholars who complete all program requirements of the Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty Program at the Parkinson’s Foundation, including an independent project within six months’ time, will be eligible for 50 nursing contact hours and a $2,000 stipend.
This continuing nursing education activity was approved by the American Association of Neuroscience Nurses, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation and offers a maximum of 50 nursing contact hours.
Both scholars and auditors are eligible for CEUs.
Scholars receive a $2,000 stipend after completing all requirements, including an independent project. The program includes a project to give nursing faculty the opportunity for self-directed learning. The project should contribute to nursing education on Parkinson’s and/or enhance the overall care of people with Parkinson’s and their families. The program director and nurse experts at the host sites will discuss projects with scholars and guide or mentor as needed.
Scholars (but not auditors) are eligible for a stipend.
