  • Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty Program

    Are you a nurse educator? Apply to The Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty Program at the Parkinson’s Foundation to help us prepare the next generation of nurses to care for the growing population of people with Parkinson’s disease (PD).

    The 40-hour accredited train the trainer Nurse Faculty Program improves PD nursing care by training faculty leaders across the U.S. to educate nursing students.

    Nurses are critical to Parkinson's care. Considering the growing number of people living with Parkinson's and the shortage of neurologists specializing in the disease, it is pressing that we prepare nurses to treat Parkinson's. 

    To date the program has trained nearly 220 nurses who in turn train 20,000 nursing students each year to meet this need.
