Abstract:
Session presented on Sunday, July 26, 2015: The ability to define scholarly work or scholarship is a dilemma nursing educator's face when preparing for promotion, tenure, merit reviews and preparing for the Certified Nursing Educator Examination. How is scholarly work defined? AACN (2014 para. 5), states "Scholarship in nursing can be defined as those activities that systematically advance the teaching, research, and practice of nursing through rigorous inquiry that 1) is significant to the profession, 2) is creative, 3) can be documented, 4) can be replicated or elaborated, and 5) can be peer-reviewed through various methods." Our aim is to help define the four pillars of scholarship: Integration, Discovery, Application, and Teaching. According to Hyman et al. (2000), the current system recognizes and rewards faculty scholarship in basic research and resident teaching. Rank and promotion depends heavily on scholarship activities. Nursing faculty rely on the Boyer Model. Nurse Educators find it difficult to be involved in scholarship for many reasons. A gap exists in the need for scholarship and the actual production of scholarship from nursing educators. Some Nurse Educators have suggested the need for a model or an algorithm to follow in how to traverse the scholarship path. The Boyer Model AACN (2013), gives definitions and examples of the four basic areas of scholarship. Many faculty find it hard to understand and implement. Hyman et al (2000), suggests the use of a multidimensional model called UniScope Model of Scholarship for the 21st Century which shares new insight into making scholarship for nursing faculty user-friendly. Rapid growth of technology in the 21st century has created new challenges for academic scholarship. "A premise of the UniScope challenge is all forms of scholarship should be recognized equitably, Hyman, et al (2000 p 44)." Conclusion Educators of the 21st century are expected to be knowledgeable and creative. Many nursing educators promote a culture of involvement and application to the realities of today's society. Educators and scholars should be able to identify their own accomplishments and take credit for their work, by disseminating knowledge. A model or algorithm will simplify the examples of each pillar of scholarship to a more easily identifiable entity.
