Nursing Educators at CUNY (NYCNECT)

Public Group active 4 months, 3 weeks ago

A community of practice comprised of CUNY nursing educators (full time, adjunct and clinical instructors) as well as other health professions educators and staff devoted to improving teaching and learning practices among CUNY nursing schools and programs and interprofessional education.

Members are encouraged to share and inquire about tips and strategies for improving instruction, as well as innovative instructional technologies and tools for classroom, clinical, or online learning environments. We welcome posts dedicated to networking and collaboration, promoting CUNY events of interest, and sharing upcoming conferences and Calls for Abstracts/Papers.

Originally a learning space for Faculty Transformers enrolled in the New York City Nursing Education Consortium in Technology (NYCNECT), we welcome all who share a passion for improving how we educate nurses to become better clinicians and improve the safety and quality of patient care.

Moderators Wanted!

We are looking for volunteers interested in moderating this group. If you would like to take a more active role in facilitating discussion and sharing resources with the community, please contact Shawn McGinniss at


NYCNECT is a CUNY-wide faculty development initiative supported by HRSA which offers annual training programs to faculty interested in teaching and learning with technology, with a focus on innovative instructional strategies using simulation, informatics, telehealth, and mobile devices.
