BACKGROUND: Scholarly writing, although central to the completion of doctoral studies, is often not supported by systematic teaching/learning approaches that specifically help students to convey scholarship through writing. The purpose of this project was to promote writing as an essential component of scholarship, provide opportunities for students to develop a self-awareness of confidence in writing and challenges to writing, and to improve writing competence. METHODS: An innovative set of peer-supported interventions was embedded within a core foundational course in a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programme during the first academic semester as part of a continuing quality improvement process to improve DNP student writing...

The midcareer academic period is largely unexplored despite its lengthy duration and challenging career expectations at academic institutions. The Midwest Nursing Research Society (MNRS) formed a Midcareer Scholars Task Force to address this gap. All active members of MNRS were invited to participate in a cross-sectional survey, of which 286 members completed. The most frequently perceived institutional support for midcareer scholars was for conference attendance followed by librarian assistance. Most assistant and associate professors perceived mentoring as a critical MNRS organizational activity to advance their research and careers; however, full professors saw MNRS's responsibility in mentoring midcareer scholars differently...

BACKGROUND: Many students today desire an education that can be completed without attending traditional classroom settings. Nursing administrators are responding by increasing the number of online course offerings, which has resulted in more nursing faculty asked to transition coursework from traditional to online classes, often without support. METHOD: The sample for this quantitative, descriptive, comparative study included nursing faculty from 15 randomly selected states who participated in an online survey, producing 185 completed surveys for analysis...

Doctor of nursing practice (DNP) projects are summative evaluations of enactment of the DNP Essentials. However, information about structure, process, and outcomes of DNP projects is scarce. Guided by an enhanced actualized DNP model, this study tested the effect of a PhD-DNP-site mentor model to guide DNP projects. Time-to-complete assignments, defense, and graduation improved; high satisfaction for students, mentors, and faculty were found; and a strengthened academic-practice partnership occurred, leading to additional student placements...

BACKROUND: As the nursing profession responds to both the nursing and faculty shortages, understanding the experience of the transition at the ADN level becomes important. Faculty roles and responsibilities differ among program types. METHOD: A qualitative research design was used to explore the transition experience of 14 participants, identified through purposive sampling, who taught in ADN programs in Massachusetts and New Hampshire...

In reflecting on the personal experience of moving beyond life as a nurse academician, the author explored the phenomenon of living with ambiguity in the teaching-learning endeavor. From the stories of new graduates of baccalaureate nursing programs, comfort-discomfort, sureness-unsureness, and confirming-not confirming arose as paradoxical rhythms of the experience of living with ambiguity. Acknowledging the challenge of creating sacred space in the contemporary nursing curriculum for living with ambiguity and not knowing, the author provided insights into the importance of creating a safe, sacred space with trusted faculty mentors to allow students to begin a journey where discovery and inquiry are valued in their process of becoming competent professional nurses on a never-ending journey of coming to know...

Mentoring is a way to foster personal and professional career development within professional disciplines such as nursing. The National League for Nursing has described the nurse faculty role as multidimensional and difficult to balance. A school of nursing implemented a faculty mentorship program focused on the school's core values: caring, professionalism, respect, integrity, diversity, and excellence (CPRIDE). This program combines traditional and nontraditional mentoring models to create an environment in which junior faculty form relationships with senior faculty who possess expertise in a particular field...

PURPOSE: Among research-focused nursing doctoral (PhD) programs in the United States, the traditional dissertation format has recently given way to a series of publication-ready manuscripts, often bookended by introduction and conclusion chapters. To help programs make decisions about the use of these formats, this study undertook a national survey of programs offering PhDs in nursing. The purpose of this study was to explore the advantages and disadvantages of the traditional format versus manuscript option for dissertations among nursing PhD programs in the United States...

Honors programs in nursing can facilitate the professional development of high-achieving students, supporting their lifelong engagement in nursing practice, education, research, and health care policy issues. Strong mentoring relationships are commonly identified as essential to the success of nursing honors programs, but literature on mentoring relationships in an honors context is limited. The purpose of this study was to gain insight into faculty and student expectations for mentorship. Faculty and students shared similar expectations for both the mentor and mentee, highlighting key themes of engagement, facilitation, accountability, and collaboration as necessary for the success of an undergraduate nursing honors program...
