Problem: Increased class size and decreased availability of nursing faculty have resulted in an increase in adjunct faculty providing clinical supervision. Little is known about the socialization process for the adjunct clinical faculty member. The purpose of this study was to explore and identify the needs of adjunct nursing faculty related to socialization into a faculty role. These data can be used to develop a model describing appropriate interventions that will address this gap in our knowledge. The ability to retain adjunct faculty is critical to the ability to provide adequate clinical experience to nursing students, Design: Qualitative, Grounded Theory Subjects: After appropriate consent, 25 adjunct clinical faculty were interviewed. Participants were identified using the alumni roster of the Collegiate Nurse Educators Clinical Faculty Academy based in Kansas City, MO. Each participant had worked as an adjunct faculty, providing clinical supervision only. Method: Interviews ranged from 30 to 60 minutes in length. Each interview was audio-taped and transcribed verbatim. Data were managed using HyperResearch and analyzed using Grounded Theory techniques. Demographic information was self-disclosed, for the purpose of describing the study population. Interview questions surrounded the experience of being an adjunct faculty person, and focused on the orientation, perception and needs associated with this faculty position. Probing questions were used to determine what would make the experience more positive and identifying gaps. Results: While not yet analyzed, results of this study will provide data, from the perspective of the adjunct faculty, describing what can be done to assure that they are properly socialized to this role. Maintaining adjunct faculty is necessary in light of the severe faculty shortage.
