Nurse Educator Recruitment Campaign

Nurses for a Healthier Tomorrow (NHT) announces the launch of a new outreach campaign to increase the number of nurse educators available to teach in nursing schools and in clinical settings nationwide.

As interest in nursing careers continues to grow, nursing colleges and universities are struggling to expand programs and accommodate all qualified students. Over the past three years, thousands of would-be nurses have been turned away from nursing schools, primarily due to an insufficient number of faculty. To compound the problem, a wave of faculty retirements is expected over the next 10 years as competition for nurses with advanced degrees continues to grow.

NHT's 43 member organizations are committed to alleviating the nursing shortage by addressing one of its root causes through the new faculty recruitment campaign. Organizers are looking to inspire a new generation of nurse educators to pursue the unique rewards and benefits associated with preparing the future nursing workforce.

The new campaign features:

  • Four colorful ads depicting Nurse Educators which encourage teaching careers
  • An outreach campaign to nursing journals and the mass media
  • A new career profile on the Nurse Educator posted on the NHT Web site
  • Ready-to-Run articles featured in a special edition of the NHT newsletter

The campaign's success will rely heavily on grassroots support. If you have specific questions or requests about the campaign, please contact rrosseter@aacn.nche.edu.
