Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: As the nursing shortage becomes an increasingly prominent everyday pressure for practice leaders, a widespread perception that nurse educators are failing to fulfill their responsibility to prepare the next generation of nurses is escalating tensions between the two sectors. Although the "job ready/practice ready" debate has always been an important undercurrent for our discipline, extreme shortages affecting practice sector performance across the country create conditions that fuel heightened distrust and division. In this context, nursing leaders in academia and practice must engage in thoughtful and respectful dialogue and collaborate on strategies to ensure that tensions between the two sectors are managed and counterproductive schisms prevented. In this presentation, we deconstruct current thinking regarding responsibility for the current problem by: describing distinct differences in the characteristic assumptive base under which nursing colleagues in practice and education operate; explaining key aspects of the contextual climate that differentially affect practice and education; and examining specific "blindspots" on both sides that compromise the capacity for collaborative planning. On this basis, we challenge nursing academic leaders to accept specific and particular responsibilities, individually and throughout their organizations, to promote constructive engagement and ensure that practice and education work together to prepare tomorrows nursing workforce.
