The Influence of Orientation, Integration, and Evaluation on Intent to Stay in Part-Time Clinical Nursing Faculty
Carlson, Joanne S.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Simmons College
The primary purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which orientation, evaluation, and integration practices, along with other select job aspects and demographic characteristics, were correlated with and explained intent to stay among part-time clinical nursing faculty. A conceptual model was developed and tested. A researcher designed Web-based survey was used to collect data from a national convenience sample of (n = 553) part-time clinical nursing faculty teaching in prelicensure baccalaureate nursing programs. Descriptive statistics, evaluation of open-ended responses, and the multiple regression techniques of ordinary least squares and ordered probit were used to analyze study results. Regression analysis revealed helpfulness of student provided feedback, ease of getting help from the school of nursing, pay, time projected to be spent on life and family responsibilities over the next year, mentoring support, hours worked in a second job, and a previous education course as significant in explaining intent to stay among part-time clinical nursing faculty who responded to the survey. Content analysis of the open-ended questions provided confirmatory support to the quantitative data obtained in the study. Findings from this study can help inform nursing program policy and practices pertaining to part-time clinical nursing faculty.
