iTeachNursing.org, the Centralized Faculty Resource Center (CFRC), was created to more efficiently and effectively fill vacant nursing faculty positions within the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. The goal of the CFRC is to improve the number and quality of nurses available to serve as part-time and full-time faculty for both didactic classes and clinical training. The CFRC serves as a one-stop resource to target and inform new and potential nursing faculty, facilitate the sharing of faculty among schools and enhance the ease by which experienced nurses can become clinical faculty. The site provides faculty job postings, gathers experience and education information from potential faculty, creates a centralized qualified candidate pool, clarifies nursing faculty requirements, and identifies career resource links and best practice models to all faculty.
Development of the CFRC was funded through a generous grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation as part of the Betty Irene Moore Nursing Initiative. This project is the second in a suite of three shared services under the Bay Area Nursing Resource Center umbrella, which is a collaboration between the Foundation for California Community Colleges (FCCC) and the California Institute for Nursing & Health Care (CINHC).
