Overview
The US is facing a critical shortage of the Child-Health nursing faculty crucial to preparing future providers of culturally competent pediatric health care and leaders in Child-Health nursing.  The goals of this project are to train CHN faculty leaders interested in leadership, education and research using the framework of the existing Ph.D. program at the SON.  The objectives include recruiting culturally, racially, ethnically and geographically diverse nurses into a distance accessible Ph.D. program as well as providing medium- and short-term CHN training to students not interested in a long-term doctoral program.  In addition, the project aims to provide consultation, continuing education and collaboration to CH agencies and providers at all levels (local, regional, state, national).
