Title:
Leadership Development: Nurse Faculty Shortage-Can We Model the Way?
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) A mentor-mentee relationship allows for continuous feedback and self-exploration. Thus the mentee can learn leadership skills. This Nurse Faculty Mentored Leadership Development project is a vehicle for the scholar to apply leadership skill. It is comprised of two phases & serves two purposes: 1)      Develop and test the psychometric properties of the Nurse Educator Career Path Scale (NFCPS), a measure to assist in predicting future nursing faculty workforce. 2)       Examine the influence of a tailored student-faculty shadowing experience on students’ future career choices. This project enabled the scholar to influence others, build leadership capacity in students, create synergy and commitment among faculty, and implement cultural change.  Currently, few nurses are choosing the path towards educator, which heightens the nursing shortage problem. Nursing faculty have a distinct advantage in tailoring interventions to address the nursing faculty shortage, proximity to undergraduate students. Phase I: The 24-item NFCPS was developed tested. It is a reliable and valid measure of predicting students’ intentions and motivators to pursue a future career in nursing education. Phase II:  Began January, 2011 and ends January 2012. Senior nursing students from 3 different cohorts (n=78) will be randomly assigned to shadow a faculty preceptor for 4-8 hours each.  The difference in pre-and post-NFCPS score will be examined. Scores of students who shadow a faculty will be compared with scores of students who shadow (120 students) a clinical nurse leader. Reflective journals and focus groups discussions will provide qualitative data. Leadership skill development in the mentee include 1) achieving group consensus, 2) negotiating faculty buy-in to the project, and 3) developing organizational skills during project implementation. The project can be easily replicated by others. Using the NFCPS to better understand student perceptions has potential for creating and tailoring focused interventions to increase the future nursing faculty supply.
