School of Nursing faculty are actively engaged in scholarly activity
by Kathleen McCoy |
Of the 24 full time School of Nursing faculty assigned to teach primarily in the baccalaureate and/or graduate nursing programs, 12 had tripartite appointments in which 20 percent of their time was allocated to research and scholarly activity. At the same time, it is noteworthy that some bipartite faculty engaged in scholarly activity for their own professional growth and fulfillment. Scholarship responsibilities are fulfilled by conducting and reporting research, and by implementing and reporting creative approaches to meeting the needs of society and the profession. Collectively, the scholarly work of UAA nursing faculty during FY09 included 16 publications, 23 presentations, 12 manuscripts in preparation and six extramural grants. A few of the journals faculty are published in are Quality Management in Health Care, Journal of Professional Nursing and Journal of Transcultural Nursing.
