Abstract:
Developing a cadre of doctorally prepared nurses trained to assume the scientist role is needed to advance nursing science in the 21st century. With the nursing shortage distributed across all dimensions of the profession, there are too few nurses with a doctoral degree to fill the available Research Chair positions and not enough junior doctorally prepared nurses to replace those who will retire during the next 10 to 15 years. Previously framed as an issue of lack of doctorally prepared nurses, this presentation will put forward the position that the real issue is to increase the number of nurses who can produce scholarly work of such high quality that they receive international recognition for their work. This presentation will address the status of doctoral education in Canada, reasons for the shortage of doctorally prepared nurses, and strategies for recruiting and retaining doctorally prepared nurses. A coalitional approach among funding agencies, educational institutions, clinical agencies, nursing profession, and doctorally prepared nurses themselves is needed to take meaningful steps forward in building the capacity for nursing scholarship in Canada. The time is now to develop a cadre of doctorally prepared nurses' the means for advancing nursing science in Canada.
