This article discusses faculty clinical practice and explains the steps that one group of nursing faculty used to develop a faculty practice plan at a private college of nursing in a small, faith-based university in a mid-western city. The goal of the faculty practice plan was to link faculty interests and advanced practice skills with targeted populations and community needs. This was done to provide healthcare services to schools, agencies, health and human services programs, and populations in need. Examples of faculty roles in the faculty practice domains of educator, researcher, and expert clinician in an acute care setting illustrate how nurses can individualize their participation in the faculty practice plan to support their professional career goals. Faculty practice plans can benefit not only nursing faculty but also the college of nursing, its students, and its community and populations of interest.
