My personal philosophy of teaching is evolving over my five years of teaching experience within a baccalaureate-nursing program. As I contemplate my personal beliefs pertaining to teaching and learning, I find that my mission as an educator encompasses the core values that are so important to the nursing profession: to promote integrity, altruism, caring, autonomy, dignity, and social justice. Professional values are the foundation for practice; they guide interactions with students, patients, colleagues, other professionals, and the public. Values provide the framework for commitment to patient welfare, fundamental to professional nursing practice. To accomplish the development of professional values core knowledge and competencies are essential. Utilizing the Teaching Perspectives Inventory, identification of effective perspectives will provide direction and justification for my actions as an educator. Promotion of critical reasoning and judgment, communication, assessment, and technical skills enhance the foundation of core knowledge developed in theoretical course content. Educational principles, which facilitate incorporation of my educational beliefs, include behaviorist theory, cognitivism, and humanist theory. Behaviorist theory assumes a learner is essentially passive, responding to environmental stimuli. Behavior is shaped through positive reinforcement or negative reinforcement. Cognitivist theory focuses on inner mental activities. Mental processes such as; thinking, memory, knowing, and problem solving are explored. Lastly, Humanistic theory focuses on human freedom, dignity, and potential. Humanists believe that it is necessary to study the person as a whole, especially as one grows and develops. Each of these theories takes into account the difference in learners and environment. The role of the educator as facilitator, collaborator, and enforcer promotes a learning environment in which students may respond to environmental stimuli, actively participate, and construct their own subjective representations of objective reality. It is my personal belief that learning occurs best in an environment that supports empathetic, sensitive, and compassionate care for individuals, groups, and communities. Such an environment will foster honesty and accountability, which ultimately leads to social and ethical awareness, as well as cognizance of the learners and others values and beliefs. Teaching strategies utilizing the five perspectives by Pratt, Arseneau, & Collins (2001) of transmission, developmental, apprentice, nurturing, and social reform assist in guiding my personal beliefs and intentions as an educator. Such strategies have been found through research to support problem-based learning (Pratt, et al., 2001). Pratt et al. (2001) have identified the five perspectives as: Transmission perspective states good teaching is directly associated with content or subject matter expertise. The role of the educator within the transmission perspective is to present the content accurately and efficiently, the role of the learner is responsibility to learn the content in its authorized forms (Pratt et al., 2001). Developmental perspective states good teaching must be planned and conducted from the learners' point of view. The role of the educator is to help learners develop increasingly complex and sophisticated cognitive structures related to the practice. Effective questioning and bridging knowledge are vital to changing those structures (Pratt et al., 2001). Apprenticeship perspective assumes learning is facilitated when students work on authentic tasks in real settings of application or practice. Furthermore, good teaching is more than demonstrating and having learners observe our skillful practice; it is also a process of enculturating students into a set of social norms and professional identity. Educators must be highly skilled practitioners of what their students are to learn. Overtime less direction is offered and more re.

Research and Original Creative Work
Boyer's expanded definition of scholarship in nursing is based on four functions that underlie the profile of a quality faculty member in the areas of: discovery, integration, application, and teaching. Within this framework, all forms of scholarship should be recognized and rewarded, resulting in the achievement of tenure. The scholarship of discovery is evident through the production of creative work within the education of nursing students. Utilizing current evidence through review of the literature creative strategies are utilized in the classroom setting to facilitate student learning. The scholarship of integration is evident through the collaboration with colleagues in designing and delivering nursing courses. Utilizing team teaching and mentorship the Foundations to Practice course is delivered to undergraduate nursing students. The scholarship of application is evident through the role of student advisor, fostering the students' professional growth. As a faculty advisor for our Healthy Campus initiative, as well as within our Tobacco Education grant, I am able to facilitate the scholarship of application. Lastly, the scholarship of teaching is evident through the development and testing of instructional materials within our Foundations to Practice course as well as within the clinical setting.
Program of Research and/or Focus of Original Creative Work
The Medical Emergency Team (MET) is intended to decrease non-intensive care unit cardiopulmonary arrests by early recognition of a patient's deterioration in clinical status and intervention before the patient either arrests or requires transfer to a critical care unit. An adequate orientation program is critical in the acute care setting in order to, provide the novice nurse with the skills needed to provide care to high acuity patients, the ability to recognize cues of deterioration when performing patient assessments, identify problems, call for help, and initiate immediate intervention. The planned translation project is facilitated by a curriculum utilizing high fidelity simulation to educate novice nurses to recognize promptly clinical deterioration of patients and effectively activate MET. COPA will facilitate competence in the skills and clinical decision-making associated with initiation of the MET in acute care settings for novice nurses. Utilization of a developed call criteria and algorithm will guide novice nurses through two simulations and debriefing sessions. Tools developed for evaluation of the novice nurse will assess behaviors during the simulation experience, competence, satisfaction, simulation design, and educational practices. Limitations of the planned translation project include three themes: implementation, transfer of knowledge, and sustainability. Application of the MET curriculum will address problems at the national, local, practice, and education level. Building confidence, improving patient safety, and improving patient outcomes will be facilitated through the use of simulation scenarios, evaluation, and debriefing tools developed in the planned translation project.

As a new faculty member at Florida State University I aspire to become an active member of several service projects and initiatives throughout the Florida State University campus and surrounding community. Currently serving on the Healthy Campus initiative, as well as within the community on the Capital Area Advanced Practice Council has allowed an introduction to my service accomplishments. The following presentation of institutional, nursing program, and professional and community service will provide an overview to service achievements as well as short-term goals for future accomplishments. Personal Philosophy/View of Service I strive to meet the needs of our partners and users by embracing the principles of best practice in a caring, compassionate, and competent manner. I strive to be culturally sensitive, and to work with team members and other stakeholders, respecting and appreciating their contributions. One of the overarching principles of my practice is to meet the needs of the undeserved through collaborative, interdisciplinary service projects and initiatives.
