In this article, the writer reviews literature pertaining to the underlying factors behind the nursing faculty shortage. Among these is the "ripple effect" of commercialized health care on quality and equity of nursing as a career, the less competitive allure of the academe and the lack of initiative and incentive among those in the profession to retain and replenish nursing faculty.

From the Paper:

"Nursing education lays the foundation for every nurses' practice. Whether specializing in a particular field, practicing as a generalist, pursuing graduate education, research or in an administrative role, nurses must rely on higher-schooled faculty to educate them. Unfortunately, even faculty are dwindling in number and is in danger of coming short of churning out new graduates."
