Lead Nursing Forward Website and Career Portal

LeadNursingForward.org aims to address the nurse and nursing faculty shortage by providing Maryland a “one-stop shop” where users can: learn about the nurse educator role and find inspiration in educators’ stories, find programs to pursue an advanced degree in nursing, search for open educator positions in academic institutions and healthcare organizations. Salisbury University School of Nursing (SUSON), in collaboration with University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON), is committed to developing this free web resource to help address the nursing shortage. A third partner, the Eastern Shore Regional GIS Cooperative (ESRGC), an SU outreach entity, has developed the design, code and programming for this site. This project is produced with the assistance of a Nurse Support Program II (NSPII) administered by the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) and funded through the Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC).
