Nurse-Faculty Census, 1968.
National League for Nursing, New York, NY. Research and Development.
This is the 1968 biennial census of nurse-faculty members teaching in nursing programs and in cooperating institutions providing clinical experiences for students in nursing. It is intended as an overview of current conditions and a basis for future estimates and planning. As of January 1968, 20,077 full-time and 3,554 part-time nurse-faculty members were reported as employed in 2,502 programs and there were 1,657 unfilled budgeted positions reported. The estimated total number of employed nurse-faculty members was 23,676 and the total number of unfilled budgeted positions was estimated at 1,793. Nurse-faculty members for whom educational achievement was reported generally held at least a bachelor's degree, and the majority of administrators reported the master's degree as the highest credential earned. Higher proportions of full-time nurse-faculty members functioned in the North Atlantic and Midwest than in the Southern and Western regions; however, the proportionate geographic distribution of full-time nurse-faculty members employed in the three types of registered nurse programs was closely approximated by that of students reported enrolled in these programs in each of the four regions.
