This article presents the development and psychometric analysis of the Doctoral Readiness Self-Assessment for Doctoral Study. This survey was developed as the first step of a Web-based, on-line mentoring platform for nurses who are considering a doctoral degree program. By identifying and anticipating the predictors and barriers of success in doctoral nursing education, including practical (finances, time, geographical restriction) and personal factors (motivation, attitudes, perceived ability to navigate the application process), students are guided through a self-reflective process to determine readiness...

In April 2008, the New Careers in Nursing (NCIN) Program launched a collaborative initiative between the American Association of Colleges of Nursing and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. One of the main goals of this initiative was to provide leadership development through structured activities for NCIN scholars. In order to meet this goal, 3 participating NCIN schools came together to plan and conduct a collaborative student-focused, scholar-led leadership conference for accelerated nursing students. Admittedly, collaboration among institutions of higher education is sometimes not a standard practice...

The transition from student to professional nurse is challenging and may be more difficult for underrepresented minority nurses. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation New Careers in Nursing (NCIN) program supported development of a toolkit that would serve as a transition-to-practice resource to promote retention of NCIN alumni and other new nurses. Thirteen recent NCIN alumni (54% male, 23% Hispanic/Latino, 23% African Americans) from 3 schools gave preliminary content feedback. An e-mail survey was sent to a convenience sample of 29 recent NCIN alumni who evaluated the draft toolkit using a Likert scale (poor = 1; excellent = 5)...

The New Careers in Nursing (NCIN) Program funded by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has expanded enrollment in schools of nursing with accelerated nursing programs and increased diversity in the nursing workforce. As the demand for highly educated and skilled nurses continues to grow, accelerated nursing programs are thriving and increasing in number. The growing cadre of nontraditional nursing students has challenged nursing faculty to institute innovative teaching methods to develop accelerated students' leadership skills and to provide mentoring resources for newly licensed nurses to guide the successful and complex transition from the student to professional practice...

: As the world around us evolves and as society becomes increasingly diverse, the demographics of the health professions workforce, including nursing, have been slow to change. Even with influential public relations campaigns sponsored by Johnson & Johnson (2015), pivotal policy reports such as the Institute of Medicine the Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health report (Institute of Medicine, 2010), and programs such as the New Careers in Nursing Program funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation/New Careers in Nursing (2015), much work remains if the nursing workforce is to match the demographics of the U...

In 2008, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation collaborated with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing to create the New Careers in Nursing (NCIN) scholarship program. Two goals of the program were to alleviate the nursing shortage and to increase diversity of the workforce. During this 7-year program (i.e., seven funding cycles), 130 schools of nursing in 41 states and the District of Columbia were selected as grantees, and they awarded 3,517 scholarships to second-degree accelerated nursing students who were members of groups underrepresented in nursing or who were economically disadvantaged...

Development of perceptual aptitude is a critical yet complex skill that requires the effective organization and interpretation of data using visual and auditory clinical observation. Educators face challenges in creating pedagogy that consistently demonstrates reliability and validity in fostering clinical skills. We have dependably used the arts as a means to improve students' auditory and visual skills, and this article will describe replication of our work with accelerated nursing students in a bachelor's program in their last semester of nursing school (n=23)...

The landmark report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health set a goal for the nursing community to increase the proportion of nurses with a baccalaureate degree from 50 to 80% by 2020 (Institute of Medicine, 2010). Nursing has witnessed a dramatic growth in the number of enrollments in accelerated baccalaureate of science in nursing programs for nonnursing graduates (Fang, Bednash, & DeWitty, 2012). Financing these degrees can be challenging. Many second-degree students no longer qualify for the federal grant programs and may have exhausted their federal undergraduate loan limits...

In 2008, faced with the challenges of a looming nursing shortage and a nursing workforce that did not mirror the diversity of the population of the United States, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation considered how to contribute to a solution. A key challenge was how to rapidly and effectively build a cadre of diverse nurses who were ready to take on the leadership challenges of an evolving health care system. From that challenge, the New Careers in Nursing program was developed. A collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, the program set about to change the face of nursing...

In 2010, the Institute of Medicine made a recommendation in The Future of Nursing Report to diversify the student population of the health care professions in order to provide increasing minority providers to meet the culturally competent needs of the growing multicultural populations of the United States (Institute of Medicine, 2010). The Nursing Network and Careers and Technology Nurse Mentoring Program provides a nursing mentor to underrepresented ethnic minority and educationally disadvantaged students and a significant scholarship and stipend for tuition and monthly living expenses...

Although wikis appear to have been reported as effective tools for educators, uncertainty exists as to their effectiveness in achieving student learning outcomes. The aim of this integrative review was to examine the current evidence on the impact of wikis on student learning in courses requiring collaborative or co-developed assignments or activities. The authors searched several electronic databases for relevant articles and used R. Whittemore and K. Knafl's (2005) integrative review method to analyze and synthesize the evidence...

A shift in terminal degrees held by nursing faculty is occurring as the number of doctor of nursing practice graduates continues to rise. This change has resulted in some uncertainty and tension. At the same time, there is a pressing need for collaboration among doctoral-prepared nurse leaders to improve care and outcomes for the population. An intellectual community that nurtures learning for all members serves as a blueprint for moving toward a professoriate that engages both doctor of nursing practice- and doctor of philosophy-prepared faculty and enhances scholarly activities, research, and teaching productivity...

A critical component of the progression of a successful academic career is being promoted in rank. Early-career faculty are required to have an understanding of appointment, promotion, and tenure (APT) guidelines, but many factors often impede this understanding, thwarting a smooth and planned promotion pathway for professional advancement. This article outlines the steps taken by an APT committee to improve the promotion process from instructor to assistant professor. Six sigma's DMAIC improvement model was selected as the guiding operational framework to remove variation in the promotion process...
