These seven Clinical Instruction Modules were created in response to a need by Nursing programs for new clinical instructors. They were funded by a Johnson and Johnson grant and were initially put on line in the 4faculty.org website, that was supported by the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office. Unfortunately the 4faculty.org site is no longer being supported and these modules have been moved to the California Health Workforce Initiative web site ca-hwi.org.
The intended audience for these modules were clinical instructors in California Community Colleges. Since they were made available for free and served a significant need, new faculty in many different Colleges and Universities have used them and provided very positive feedback. Ideally the order for taking these short modules is listed below along with the names of the Authors.
