Experiences of Associate Degree Nurse Faculty Transitioning to Teach in a Baccalaureate Program
One of the major challenges of community colleges that start BSN programs is the recruitment and development of faculty to teach in the new CCB program. One effective strategy is growing your own BSN faculty from within. It is important to understand the experiences of associate degree nursing faculty as they transition to teach in a baccalaureate nursing program. Here, PhD candidate Carleen Joan Graham explores how associate degree nursing faculty members coped during the transition and identifies barriers to the transition process including management of the hurdles and faculty capacity building.
