Title Intent to stay of nursing faculty in the southern United States
Year 2007
Access date 14.05.2009

The current nursing faculty shortage makes understanding intent to stay a step towards slowing the exodus of faculty. The purpose of this study was to discover a parsimonious set of predictor variables for intent to stay in nursing education. An online survey was conducted in the spring of 2006 using four research instruments and three open ended questions. A random cluster sample of 39 schools of nursing in the southern United States participated, yielding 316 responses from 782 potential participants, response rate 40.4%. Stepwise multiple regression results indicated that organizational commitment was the parsimonious predictor variable explaining 19.7% of the variance in intent to stay one year and 21.2% of the variance in intent to stay five years. Qualitative analyses indicated the importance of balance and the contribution of peer relationships to faculty satisfaction. Mixed methodology yielded richer understanding of faculty intent while online survey techniques hastened data analyses.
