Title:
Building Scholarly Capacity in Nursing Education: SIAST Institute for Nursing Scholarship
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) Purpose: The Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST) established an Institute for Nursing Scholarship (INS) to advance scholarly efforts in both nursing education and practice. Utilizing the Boyer’s model of scholarship, the INS encompasses and supports the five foundational scholarly pillars of discovery, application, integration, teaching, and service.  Methods: A qualitative study was conducted to determine the experience and expectations of nursing faculty in their pursuit of scholarship. The survey also solicited input from nursing faculty as to how they could best be supported in advancing their scholarship. The successful establishment of the INS was an outcome of the results of the study. A virtual scholar-in-residence and an INS coordinator provide consultation, advice, and mentorship, as well as educational sessions to advance scholarship.  Results: The INS serves as a resource hub for faculty regarding all aspects of scholarly development and fosters a culture of scholarship and innovation. The scholar-in-residence and INS coordinator mentor and support the engagement of faculty in scholarship. The INS also facilitates educational sessions on a variety of scholarly topics. Positioned within a richly diverse nursing education environment, the INS provides networking opportunities and support for the development of both internal and external research partnerships. The outcome is the enthusiastic engagement of faculty in scholarship and a dramatic increase in presentations, publications, and research projects, as well as expert appointments of faculty.  Conclusion: The INS has been instrumental in building capacity for scholarship in nursing education. SIAST nursing faculty are pursuing scholarly initiatives and implementing education and practice innovations in their pursuit of excellence in nursing education.
