[Research Presentation] A significant factor in the global nursing shortage is the scarcity of qualified nursing faculty, resulting in severe limitations on the number of students accepted into nursing programs. Nursing programs have had to recruit faculty who hold graduate degrees in clinical specialties, but have no academic teaching experience. As a result, there is a crucial need to provide extensive support and professional development during the first critical years in the faculty role. This presentation discusses a descriptive study designed to assess and prioritize the professional development needs of novice nurse faculty. It also describes the development of a mentoring program intended to meet the individual professional development needs of novice nurse faculty. The study was conducted with 13 novice educators during their first two years in a faculty role. Qualitative and quantitative data were collected using the Assessment of Learning Needs of Novice Faculty survey instrument that addressed nurse educator competencies and tasks, as identified by the National League for Nursing, related to: (1) Facilitating Learning; (2) Facilitating Learner Development and Socialization; (3) Assessment and Evaluation Strategies; (4) Curriculum Design and Program Outcomes; (5) Role of the Nurse Educator; (6) Engaging in Scholarship, and (7) Functioning within the Educational Environment.áThe mentoring program was designed to focus on the individual novice educatorÆs assessment of learning needs. Each novice teacher was paired with an experienced faculty mentor. Together, using data from the Assessment of Learning Needs of Novice Faculty, the mentor and mentee created individualized professional development goals, an action plan, and a timeline for implementation of learning activities.áInformation in this presentation is important to all nursing programs experiencing an influx of nurse educators who are clinically proficient, but are novices in the educator role.
