Faculty Academy & Mentorship Initiative of Maryland (FAMI-MD)
The Faculty Academy and Mentorship Initiative of Maryland (FAMI-MD), formerly known as ESFAMI, prepares experienced Bachelor or higher degree prepared registered nurses for new roles as clinical nursing faculty members.
Funded through the Maryland Higher Education Commission Nurse Support II program, FAMI-MD is offered as a collaborative effort among nursing programs at Salisbury University, Chesapeake College, Wor-Wic Community College, Towson University, Allegany College of Maryland, Frostburg State University, and Hood College.
Nurses who participate in FAMI-MD will complete a six-week long Academy, consisting of online instruction with synchronous sessions via videoconference (Zoom).
FAMI-MD offers our traditional Introductory-FAMI academy, previously known as ESFAMI, FAMI-Central, or FAMI-West academies, as well as the new Advanced-FAMI curriculum. Advanced-FAMI builds on the topics introduced in Intro-FAMI and expands into new topics of learning for educators.Interested in Learning More?
