As distance education options continue to become available for nursing programs, market competition increases. Nursing faculty are challenged to design online courses based on best practices, and teaching online has implications for faculty role changes. This article presents a Model for Faculty Teaching Online based on faculty wisdom and expertise that evolved inductively from an exploratory study with 18 faculty teaching online. A matrix was developed to explain the dimensions of faculty teaching online. Dimensions of the matrix were confirmed through a follow-up survey to determine their relevance. A national validation study with feedback from 68 faculty teaching online confirmed the major dimensions of the matrix, including antecedent conditions, context, strategies, and outcomes. Implications for educators and for future research are provided.
