Jane Fruchtnicht's bio:

Jane Fruchtnicht is a healthcare educator, administrator, nurse manager, and clinician. She led the successful implementation of a unique and innovative combination of the departments of education at University of Virginia Health Center and the University’s School of Nursing, building a department that presented both professional development programs for hospital-based personnel and continuing education programs for an international market.

As the leader of several nursing education departments, Jane implemented a range of progressive learning strategies including research-based orientation programs and preceptorships for nursing graduates, computer and web-based learning, video conferencing/distance learning, and blended learning. Utilizing survey research and instructional design processes, she implemented customized strategies consistent with the content and audience and developed multi-level evaluative approaches. Among the results were increased educational participation and enhanced nursing retention.
