Evaluating Association Degree Nursing Faculty Job Satisfaction
This study identified factors of Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) faculty job satisfaction and dissatisfaction. Qualified applicants are denied admission to nursing programs because of faculty shortages, but little is known about the factors that support faculty retention. A nationwide survey was conducted and found that factors of dissatisfaction were salary, organizational policies, and workload. Factors of greatest satisfaction were interactions, professional status, and autonomy. These findings provide important information from which to create innovative solutions to retain current faculty.
