Abstract:
Nursing education in Canada is facing many challenges. Stressful acute care practice environments, the nursing shortage and high patient acuity levels have challenged traditional nursing education methods, raising important questions about how to best prepare our future practitioners. Given the complex nursing practice environment, there is a need to have clinically astute and contemporary practitioners educating our future nurses. The multifaceted nature of nursing faculty assignments can be a deterrent to developing clinically expert teachers. Many clinical nursing faculty are out of date with present practice, and may be fearful of engaging in clinical teaching with nursing students. The current and future faculty deficit poses an urgent problem that must be addressed with resourceful approaches. Leaders in nursing education must keep pace with current practice trends, and advance ways of recruiting and retaining nurse educators. The trend toward interdisciplinary education encourages nursing to broaden its scope of teaching and work collaboratively; sharing and exchanging clinical expertise with other professionals. Creating opportunities for ongoing faculty practice, instituting interprofessional education strategies, supporting advanced educational requirements and directing efforts to recruit and retain nurse educators, are essential in order to maintain a quality system of nursing education in Canada.
