Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: Understanding and explaining the shortage of nurses and nursing faculty across Canada is a complex undertaking. Factors contributing to the shortage will be analyzed, based on a review of government papers, research reports, and professional association documents that trace the evolution, magnitude, and span of the nursing workforce shortage already sweeping across the country. A thorough understanding of these influences is critical to academic leaders who are constantly being pressed to expand undergraduate nursing programs. Our ability to conserve Nursing as a vital resource to the health care system in the context of the nursing shortage will depend on the ability to effectively communicate the current circumstances confronting nurses and nursing educators to diverse audiences. These audiences include the public, the media, policy makers, nursing students and potential students, and nurses and nursing academics. Key target messages will be identified and explored, intending to address the following: garnering public understanding and support for nursing education and practice; enhancing the integrity of healthy workplace environments; gaining support from practicing nurses to shift models of clinical nursing education; increasing appreciation of the consequences of rapid expansion of nursing education programs; and sustaining and enhancing adequate applicant pools to nursing education programs.
