Abstract:
International and National Networking to Develop a Jordanian PhD Program
Conference Sponsor:Western Institute of Nursing
Conference Year:2009
Author:Bond, A. Elaine, DNSc, APRN, CCRN
P.I. Institution Name:University of Jordan, Faculty of Nursing
Title:Director, PhD Program
Contact Address:, Amman, 11942, Jordan
Contact Telephone:962-79-638-3782
Co-Authors:Lynn Clark Callister, RN, PhD, FAAN, Professor; Erika Sivarajan Froelicher, PhD, RN, FAAN, Professor, Fulbright Scholar; Inaam A. Khalaf, RN, PhD, Dean and Associate Professor; Manar Nabolsi, PhD, RN, Vice Dean
Background & Significance: Jordan, a developing country, initially depended on international PhD education for nursing educators and scholars. As world conditions changed, and as nursing needs increased, there were not enough nursing faculty who could go abroad for education to meet the rapidly growing demand for nurse educators and scholars. Members of the University of Jordan Faculty of Nursing felt they needed to initiate a local PhD Program to prepare additional educators and scholars. Without national networking and collaboration, commitment, and support, such a monumental undertaking would not be possible: Without international networking and collaboration with experienced educators and scholars, such a program would not be feasible. Conceptual Model: Nursing Faculty from the University of Jordan developed a two-tiered networking and collaboration education model, which involved national and international scholars. This model helped to clarify how to initiate a program that would provide great benefits and advantages to Jordanian society. Such a program required intense preparation and building, plans for sustaining the program, teaching and supervision, coupled with faculty development. The presenters for this symposium will discuss each of these elements. Program Expectations: While the PhD program was designed to provide educators and scholars, it also had numerous, indirect benefits as well: (1) It provides economic advantages -a local PhD program has lowered the costs for doctoral education, when compared to the cost of study abroad. (2) It provides a cultural advantage - having a PhD program that is sensitive to the needs of the Jordanian population. (3) It provides a great social advantage - a local PhD program provides greater opportunity for Jordanian nurses, especially married women, to study at the doctoral level. Not surprisingly, regardless of the networking to develop and sustain this program, there have been challenges. Nevertheless, the Jordanian PhD program has admitted thirty-seven master's prepared nurses, since its inception in the Fall of 2005. The first candidates will graduate in 2009.
