Sustaining a Quality Doctoral Program Through Networking
Abstract:
Sustaining a Quality Doctoral Program Through Networking
Conference Sponsor:Western Institute of Nursing
Conference Year:2009
Author:Nabolsi, Manar, PhD, RN
P.I. Institution Name:University of Jordan, Faculty of Nursing
Title:Vice Dean
Contact Address:University of Jordan Faculty of Nursing, Amman, 11942, Jordan
Contact Telephone:962-6-535-5500 ex 23110
Co-Authors:A. Elaine Bond, DNSc, APRN, CCRN, Vice Dean; Erika Sivarajan Froelicher, DNSc, APRN, CCRN, Director PhD Program; Inaam A. Khalaf, RN, PhD, Dean and Associate Professor
Background & Significance: Starting and sustaining a quality doctoral program with the current shortage of faculty members requires creative solutions and innovative long range planning. Previously, the college has used Fulbright Scholars, Professors from the international schools that signed Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs), and limited numbers of PhD faculty from other national universities. However, a strategic plan for sustaining a high quality doctoral program not only involves providing appropriate coursework and support for students, but also requires approaches to prepare additional faculty members at the associate and professor ranks, while avoiding a faculty shortage. Purposes/Aims: The purpose of this discussion is to describe the strategic plan for sustaining a high quality PhD program in Nursing at the University of Jordan. Approaches: Numerous methods are in place and others are being initiated: (1) Continue to utilize Fulbright Scholars and faculty members from International MOU Universities. (2) Recruit Jordanian faculty as they complete their doctoral work elsewhere. (3) Offer scholarships to prepare faculty with doctoral degrees. (4) Facilitate national and international collaboration and mentorship in research projects. This will provide capacity building as the international faculty guide and support the Jordanian faculty members in grant writing, research, publications, and in supervising and teaching doctoral students. (5) Develop hybrid and online courses. Conclusion: To achieve sustained success in the preparation of future generations of nursing researchers and educators, hiring new faculty members and providing mentoring programs can help current faculty gain experience as researchers with grant writing, and publications, in preparation to promote more faculty members. Additionally, the exposure of the doctoral students to international experiences through teaching and co-supervision will enhance and enrich students' experiences. This strategic plan can ensure that doctoral students will receive a broad based education, drawing from the strengths of local and international expertise.
