RN-to-BSN Students' Intent to Become Faculty: A Multisite Study.
A nursing faculty shortage means fewer nurses, exacerbating nursing shortages.
The purpose was to determine RN-to-BSN students' intent for a future nurse faculty role. A secondary purpose was to evaluate differences between students who indicated high and low intent to pursue a faculty role.
The study was multisite and multimethod using 5 instruments.
Of 137 RN-to-BSN students who completed the online survey, 20% indicated they intended to pursue a future faculty role. Students with high intent to pursue a faculty role reported higher self-efficacy and interests in faculty activities. Only 6 of the high-intent students had been encouraged to pursue a future faculty role.
RN-to-BSN students may be receptive to encouragement to consider a nursing faculty role in the future.
