Augusta University Nursing Associates, Inc.

The purposes of the Nursing Faculty Practice Plan are to:

  • Further the service, education, and research missions of the university, a component of the University System of Georgia governed by the Board of Regents
  • To enable faculty to maintain clinical competence, fulfill certification requirements and share expertise with other health care providers; and,
  • To provide additional revenue streams for the College of Nursing and salary supplementation for the faculty members. Integration of clinical practice, education and research through faculty practice promotes high quality, cost effective health care and increases access to care.

The Plan may also engage in charitable activities to benefit the AU College of Nursing in line with the appropriate Internal Revenue Code for charitable organizations. Clinical placement and education of students is also optimized through faculty practice. Faculty practice opportunities are helpful for the recruitment and retention of top quality faculty.
