Local Nursing School Confronts Nursing Faculty Shortage

Susan Blackwell-Sachs, RN

Ewing, N.J. — The U.S. shortage of nursing faculty hasn’t had a real impact on the College of New Jersey School of Nursing, Health, and Exercise Science because of careful planning by the administration, according to a recent article in
the news.

The school’s dean, Susan Bakewell-Sachs (left), has lecture and clinical classes covered by creating part-time positions. The school is focused on succession planning, with a search underway to fill two tenure-track positions for next fall. The problem is that only 9% of nurses have master’s degrees, the minimum requirement to teach, with only 1% of that group having doctorates, and the salaries for faculty are lower than in other sectors, says Bakewell-Sachs.
