CEUs & Stipend

Scholars who complete all program requirements of the Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty Program at the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation including an independent project, within six months time, will be eligible for 40 nursing contact hours and a $2,000 stipend.

This continuing nursing education activity was approved for a maximum of 40 nursing contact hours by the American Association of Neuroscience Nurses, accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

Both scholars and auditors are eligible for CEUs.

Upon completing all the requirements including an independent project, scholars will receive a $2000.00 stipend. The project is included in the program to give nursing faculty the opportunity for self-directed learning. The project should contribute to nursing education on Parkinson’s disease and/or enhance the overall care of people with Parkinson’s disease and their families. The program director and nurse experts at the host sites will discuss projects with scholars and guide/mentor as needed.

Scholars (but not auditors) are eligible for a stipend.
