Abstract:
Purpose: The shortage of nurse faculty in Thailand is a significant issue that impacts the production of qualified graduate nurses.

Methods: The researcher reviewed all published studies in Thailand between 2000 and 2010 on the topic.

Results: The results showed that there was not an adequate number of nurse faculty to produce qualified nurses to serve the contry's health care system as needed. There are many aging faculty with an average age of 41 years. The legal retirement age in Thailand is 60 years old.  It was found that factors related to the intent to stay among nurse faculty were work environment, organizations culture, commitment and quality of working life.

Conclusion: The results of this study can be used by administrators and policy makers to plan for nurse faculty workforce and to improve the work environment to decrease the premature turnover rate of existing nurse faculty.
