From April 1993 to November 1996, the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing created and implemented a nine-month faculty education project to prepare certified nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners for clinical and classroom teaching.
The training program featured:
- Three five-day workshops at the University of Pennsylvania.
- Ongoing training with "mentor teachers" at students' home institutions.
- The project established a nine-month teacher education program for certified nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners.
- Forty-eight certified nurse midwives and nurse practitioners received post-Master's teaching certificates. Participants were a culturally diverse group of men and women from 38 universities in 23 states and the District of Columbia.
