Fieldwork Educator Incentives

We value opportunities to recognize and support your teaching and clinical expertise, and opportunities to partner with you in developing quality learning experiences for our students.

Incentives

  1. Certificates of appreciation (available upon request) recognizing hours spent in student instruction. You can use this document to verify CEU units for state licensure or NBCOT renewal.
