Faculty members are involved in research activities. Faculty members maintain expertise appropriate to their teaching responsibilities in a variety of ways including clinical practice (not private practice) and/or maintain national nursing certifications. Professional staff are involved in their respective professional organizations as a way to maintain expertise and improve services for students.
