Title:
The Courage to be a Nurse Educator
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) Purpose:  The Institute of Medicine has called for reform in the education of healthcare professionals.  For most, change brings with it anxiety.  To step outside the familiar, takes courage and tenacity.  It is courage to change that leads to excellence as an educator.  The purpose of this presentation is to summarize global challenges faced by nurse educators today and explore ways to address these challenges with courage rooted in identity and integrity.  Methods:  An extensive review and synthesis of extant literature revealed myriad challenges confronting nurse educators.  An exploration of this literature led to a description of issues confronting nurse educators today and suggestions for courageously integrating the identity and integrity of individual nurse educators in the future. Results:  Educators must be courageous in finding their unique identity, and with integrity, use new teaching strategies to meet the increasing needs of a globally diverse student body.  Introduced with this diversity are challenges in facing the fear of moral and ethical differences and issues.  Innovative platforms for teaching, new technologies for education, economical constraints, and institutional demands influence the knowledge, roles, and responsibilities required of educators.  Courage is a requisite attribute for addressing the unique issues associated with shortages in facilities and faculty.  Filling the faculty gap has required the rapid integration of clinically proficient nurses with varied experience who must face the new arena of education, introducing discussion regarding issues of faculty competence. Conclusions:  Nurse educators must muster courage to face the challenges in nursing education.  An understanding of selected philosophical and theoretical aspects of the attribute of character called courage is helpful in appreciating the bravery needed to be a nurse educator.  Courageous educators can embrace challenges, realizing the potential global contributions they can make to nursing knowledge and the future of higher education.
