Summary of "Taking the leap from clinical practice to academic faculty: A beginner's guide."

Exploring new roles and responsibilities available to clinicians offers a path to renovate a nurse practitioner's career. The role of academician and nurse faculty broadens career horizons, presents a sense of autonomy, and offers unique opportunities to teach, participate in research, build leadership skills, and contribute to the health care delivery system at a higher level. Advance practice nurses often consider a shift to academia but are concerned about the unfamiliarity of the entire process. This article offers elements a clinician will likely encounter throughout the transition to a faculty role. These include expectations for the application and interview, negotiating for a position, and orientation to the role of an academic.
