Nursing Faculty Consultant
Dr. Nance-Floyd has over 18 years of classroom and clinical nursing education. She has shared her strategies with locally, nationally and international faculty. She has extensive experience in creating unique gaming strategies to teach complex content. For example, she created and implemented gaming tools such as, Mr. Potato Head, Jeopardy, and Who Want to be a Millionaire for in person and online classes.
Additionally, she has taught faculty the skills to write in depth unfolding case studies to be used in class or clinical for undergraduate and graduate students. She has mentored faculty and students in manuscript and abstract submissions and developing and executing professional presentationsAs a past community college instructor and NC native, Dr. Nance-Floyd knew first-hand the challenges that face rural nursing educators. Rural residents depend heavily on their local community colleges to help meet educational needs in their area and nursing graduates who work in rural areas tend to begin their education in community college nursing programs.
Currently, community college nursing programs do not teach traditional community health or public health nursing. To meet this need, she developed the UNC RN Community Faculty Fellows Foundation program. It was designed as a train-the-trainer to promote sustainability. This 9-month Train-the-Trainer RN Community College Faculty Fellows program had three aims, to: 1) share best practices in nursing education; 2) engage community college nursing students in strategies for improving community health; and 3) improve access to health screenings and education for agricultural and farming industry workers in rural NC. She mentors Community College Faculty – where they live.
Additionally, she developed a two-day seminar for community college faculty to explore and discuss best practices for classroom, existing clinical training sites, laboratory simulation, and clinical training site development. She taught clinical site development using a combination of community-participatory model and faith-based learning during the seminar and demonstrated the techniques in their communities. Moreover, through two unique NC AHEC grants, Dr. Nance-Floyd led clinical site development for an Interprofessional Education (IPE) course and a train-the-trainer program for nursing faculty in rural community colleges in NC.
