Abstract:
What is the impact of paradigm shift on recruitment and retention? The current shortage of qualified faculty, along with political and societal pressures to increase the number of graduating nurses and to diversify educational options, is stretching human, fiscal and physical resources in nursing education programs. Nurse educators have a unique work life and work environment, and must balance teaching responsibilities with accountability for scholarly activity, academic organizational functioning, and professional competence. There is little research into nurse educators' workplace environments and their experience of the accelerating pace and challenges of preparing the future nursing workforce. A mixed methods approach was used to develop a survey instrument designed to measure the elements of a quality workplace for nurse educators in BC schools of nursing. Based on the findings, it is evident new approaches are needed to enhance the quality of nurse educators' workplace environments in order to support their recruitment and enhance retention, and to encourage registered nurses to consider a career in nursing education. It is critical to gain recognition of this issue in the broader health care system, and address it at a systemic level.
