The revised Standards for the North Carolina Board of Nursing (NCBN) specify that "nursing faculty who teach in a program leading to initial licensure have preparation in teaching and learning principles for adult education, including curriculum development, implementation and evaluation." This preparation can be completed prior to or within the first three years of employment.

In an effort to meet this requirement, the nursing faculty at East Carolina University developed the Nursing Education Educator Development (NEED) program.
