Title:
The Looming Crisis of an Inadequate Pipeline for Nursing Faculty
Abstract:
The Looming Crisis of an Inadequate Pipeline for Nursing Faculty
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2007
Author:Cleary, Brenda L., PhD, RN, FAAN
P.I. Institution Name:University of North Carolina
Title:Executive Director
Co-Authors:Billy Bevill, MSN, RN; Linda Lacey, MA and Jennifer Nooney, PhD
[Research Presentation] PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT: To examine trends in educational mobility among registered nurses to determine factors related to the adequacy of the pipeline for future nursing faculty. BACKGROUND AND SIGNIFICANCE: Regardless of the lack of consensus regarding the impact of the education of the nursing workforce on patient outcomes, the inability to increase the numbers of nursing faculty or even replace existing faculty who are likely to retire in the next 10 years due to trends in the education of the nursing workforce, is a concern to everyone. METHODOLOGY: Two statewide cohorts of Registered Nurses were followed over time to determine the extent, nature, and timing of educational mobility patterns beyond the initial preparation. A 1983-1984 cohort of new RNs was compared and contrasted with a 1993-1994 cohort of new RNs. MAJOR FINDINGS: The majority of nurses in both groups did not pursue educational mobility options beyond their initial preparation in nursing, although there were differences among the cohorts as well as differences by initial educational preparation in terms of likelihood of doing so. CONCLUSIONS/IMPLICATIONS: The implications, including the policy implications, of these findings, will be discussed in light of exponential increases in the number of qualified students being denied admission to nursing programs at all levels and growing concerns that the problem may be exacerbated with the number of nursing faculty approaching retirement age.
