Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: The push to increase undergraduate enrolments requires a corresponding growth in the ranks of nurse educators, who are collectively aging and looking towards retirement. Coupled with the present faculty shortage, the need for nursing faculty will increase dramatically. Thus, innovative ways to prepare and socialize graduate students for future faculty roles is required. As nursing faculty retire, so too will those among them who are in academic leadership positions. Succession planning for these leadership roles occurs within the inner circle of current faculty; but this group is aging and diminishing each year. As such, who will tomorrow's leaders be, and how do we interest and prepare them for these roles? The answer may be in actively engaging graduate students in learning experiences that will prepare them for potential academic leadership roles. The presenter will describe a course that was collaboratively designed to provide one graduate student with access and opportunity to critically analyze the roles, functions, and responsibilities of various academic leaders, committees and councils, as well as academic/administrative processes and structures. In-depth understandings gained from this innovative approach to succession planning will be shared in this presentation.
