Abstract:

Nurse faculty within the US and globally suffer a shortage of numbers. Nurse faculty employment is projected a need of over 90,000 positions by 2022 to meet the demands of educating licensed registered nurses. The recruitment and retention of nurse faculty becomes a focus in facing such demands. Will addressing new faculty concerns improve attrition rates? The purpose of this project was to investigate and address new faculty concerns in order to improve satisfaction and retention. Analysis of evidence suggested factors that affect nurse faculty retention include; retirement, job satisfaction, and empowerment. Learning needs of new nurse faculty seeks to promote movement from novice to expert within the educator role. Two informational modules were developed based on a new faculty needs assessment survey. The modules were provided for faculty review and reference in order to increase knowledge and serve as faculty development. Independent sample t-test compared the means from pre and post assessments along with Levene’s Test for Equality of Variance. The mean results were not significant, however qualitative responses noted faculty request for continued tool kit resources for future reference.
