OBJECTIVES: To explore the relationships between personal attributes and level of learning needs of nursing faculty in Japan. DESIGN: Exploratory and correlational design. CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK: The conceptual framework of the study includes 26 attributes of nursing faculty as independent variables, and level of learning needs of them as the dependent variable. The 26 attributes were selected based on a literature review of learning needs of nursing faculty. METHODS: Participants completed the Questionnaire for Faculty's Attributes (QFA) and the Learning Needs Assessment Tool for Nursing Faculty (FLNAT). The QFA was used to examine the 26 attributes of nursing faculty, and the content validity was validated by a pilot study and a panel of experts. The FLNAT was used to measure the level of learning needs of nursing faculty. The items of the FLNAT describe the learning needs of nursing faculty as identified by a qualitative and inductive study (Miura, 2004), and participants rated the degree of need for each item. The FLNAT has satisfactory reliability and validity. The instrument packets were distributed to 1699 nursing faculty randomly sampled from baccalaureate programs, associate degree programs, and diploma programs in Japan. The answers were returned by mail and they were analyzed statistically. FINDINGS & IMPLICATIONS: Nine hundreds and seventy five (57.4%) nursing faculty responded, and 937 valid data were analyzed. The results showed that 6 of the 26 attributes related with the level of learning needs of nursing faculty. Those were, academic background, type of program of one's workplace, type of program of one's basic nursing education, research activities, availability of access to research advisor, member of academic society, and stressor. To specify the important factors, which relate with the level of learning needs of nursing faculty, the relationships among the 6 attributes should be examined in a further study.
