The need for registered nurses in the United States continues to grow. To meet this need for increased numbers of nurses, recruitment and retention of qualified nurse educators has become a priority. In addition, the factors associated with nursing faculties’ intent to stay have emerged as important considerations for administrators. The concepts of job satisfaction and intent to stay become vital to recruiting and retaining nursing faculty. In the past decade few empirical studies have been conducted on a national scale to address job satisfaction and intent to stay in academia. The purpose of this retrospective study is to analyze variables of relationships with nurse faculty job satisfaction and intent to stay from data collected throughout the United States. The Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) survey was employed for the purposes of this study. Over 1,350 nurse educators were included in the survey. The findings support a variety of modifiable variables that are viewed as important by nursing faculty. The strongest relationship was found to be institutional leadership. The implications can inform academic administrators seeking to retain nursing faculty.
Even though the nation anticipates a deficit of over 260,000 by 2025, expansion of programs of nursing are hampered by the ballooning demand for nursing faculty by 2020 (Spann, 2010). The work related factors associated with recruiting and retaining those qualified faculty are complex. Leadership remains a major factor related to job satisfaction and intent to stay in nursing education. Recommendations for institutional leadership such as deans and directors are (a) to develop personal and family policies tailored for faculty; (b) provide a culture of support; (c) clearly communicate expectations for all nursing faculty, especially for those seeking tenure. Institutions of higher education can use the findings in this study to recognize factors associated with nursing faculty needs and expectations to achieve greater job satisfaction and intent to stay.
