Abstract:
The Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) has challenged the traditional boundaries of scholarship to appropriately reflect the nursing discipline and the full range of activities expected of a nursing faculty (CASN, 2004). The purpose of this study was to explore faculty perceptions of nursing scholarship within the McMaster Mohawk Conestoga BScN Program gaining an understanding of activities and expectations of nursing scholarship from the viewpoint of faculty members. Q-Sort Methodology (QM) was used to identify different and unique viewpoints as well as commonly shared views. QM provides a method for taking subjective statements and developing an objective outcome. A 36 item Q-Sort was created from faculty statements and then completed by 50 faculty at all three sites. Data analysis is currently underway using PQ Method 2.11, software. Results will be ready September, 2007. The study will provide the groundwork for the BScN faculty to plan and promote strategies for the advancement of scholarship consistent with the CASN position statement. Specifically, faculty development activities will be planned and implemented, appropriate resources obtained and the spirit of scholarship captured in a Model of Scholarship for the BScN Program.
