Today there is a nursing shortage crisis across the United States. There are not enough qualified nurses to care for patients. Solving this problem is complicated because there is also a nursing faculty shortage. As a result, learners wanting to attend schools of nursing are being turned away. Nurses must be recruited to teach in higher education. However, nurses are experts in patient care, not trained educators. This situation is likely similar to most schools in higher education. Experts who become faculty are not typically trained to teach. Nurses and other experts are expected to develop teaching skills within the time constraint of the faculty role. How can we add additional support to the current mechanisms in place for new faculty development? Perhaps faculty evaluations of teaching can support the development of faculty teaching and learning practice.
