A Monograph Sequel: Have You Ever Thought of Being a Dean?
American Association of Colleges of Nursing, Washington, DC.
Five papers from a 1982 workshop entitled "Have You Ever Thought of Being a Dean?" are presented. The workshop is part of the Continuing Education for Nurse Academic Administrators Project of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. After a foreword (Marion I. Murphy) and an introduction (Betty M. Johnson), "The Dean as Administrator: Roles, Functions, and Attributes," (Phyllis Drennan) is presented. Two major responsibilities of the dean are discussed: as chairman of the faculty and executive officer of the college. Next, "The Dean as Scholar: Clinical Competence, Teaching, Research, and Publication," (Helen K. Grace) suggests that the administrative work of the dean demands the discipline and orientation of the scholar. In "The Dean as a Person: Rights and Responsibilities," Valencia N. Prock discusses her individual style as a dean using her large university as an example. "The Dean as Colleague: Dean, Student, Faculty, Administrative Relationships" (M. Jeremy Buckman) emphasizes the importance of creating an environment of collegiality for other deans, faculty, students, and administrators. Finally, "Challenges for Nursing Administrators" (Jeannette R. Spero) suggests that a current challenge is reaffirmation of the relevance of collegiate education in nursing. (SW)
