Princeton, N.J. – A report commissioned by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation gives a state-of-the-state view of nursing faculty issues in New Jersey.
The paper includes factors underlying the nursing workforce shortage; current educational paths for N.J. nurses; recruitment and retention issues, including salaries, workload, and vacancies; trends affecting the faculty workforce; new practices; and recommendations.
The report, coauthored by Reinhard, Wright, and Cook, offers key findings based on a review of the literature, interviews with experts in nursing education, and a statewide meeting of the New Jersey Fellows of the American Academy of Nursing.
