Virginia Nursing Faculty Salaries. Report to the Joint Commission on Health Care.
Virginia State Council of Higher Education, Richmond.
The Joint Committee on Health Care requested the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) to compare nursing faculty salaries with clinical practice salaries, review the workload issues related to changes in nursing practice in health care facilities, and make recommendations to address any inappropriate disparities. In response to that request, SCHEV surveyed 37 nursing education programs at Virginia public and private institutions in July 2002. Twenty-nine institutions provided responses, a 78.4% response rate, with replies from 385 full-time instructional nursing faculty. Based on an analysis of the data collected, the SCHEV concludes that there are no significant disparities in salary and workload between Virginia nursing faculty and those in clinic practices. SCHEV makes no formal recommendations about these issues, although SCHEV does advocate continued competitive nursing faculty salaries in Virginia. Two appendixes contain a list of participating institutions and the survey form. (Contains 9 tables and 10 references.) (SLD)
