[Symposium scientific presentation] OBJECTIVE: To explore the current status of role model behaviors of nursing faculty in the United States. METHODS: The participants of this study were nursing faculty in the United States. The participants received two instruments by electronic mail and completed them. The first instrument was the Self-Evaluation Scale on Role Model Behaviors for Nursing Faculty (RMBNF-E) developed to measure the role model behaviors of nursing faculty, and it has well-established internal consistency and content validity. The RMBNF-E has 35 items with 5-point Likert-type scale (from1 "almost never" to 5 "always"), and the 35 items were grouped into 5 subscales. The second instrument is the Faculty Attribute Questionnaire (FAQ-E) developed to examine the 23 attributes of nursing faculty. The data from the nursing faculty were analyzed statistically.RESULTS: The valid data were 53. All participants were working at the BSN or graduate programs in nursing. Forty-eight (90.6%) of 53 were female, and 4 (7.5%) were male. More than half were over 50 years old.  The mean of all items in RMBNF-E was 4.4 (SD=.3), and the mean of all items in each subscale was as follows: (1) Behaviors that show matured sociality (mean=4.4, SD=.4),  (2) Behaviors that shows respect to students (mean=4.7, SD=.3), (3) Behaviors that shows value of nursing practice and nursing profession (mean=4.5, SD=.4), (4)Behaviors oriented enthusiastic and high quality teaching activities(mean=4.4, SD=.4), and (5)Behaviors oriented ongoing professional development (mean=4.0, SD=.5). IMPLICATIONS: The results suggested that the nursing faculty in the United States highly self-evaluated "Behaviors that shows respect to students", on the other hand, underestimated "Behaviors oriented ongoing professional development." It is important to provide opportunities for improving "Behaviors oriented ongoing professional development."
