Faculty Shortages and Shortages in Nursing
An 8 page research paper that discusses the nursing shortage and how it relates to a similar shortage of nursing educators. In order make-up for the tremendous nursing shortage that is evidence across the country, universities and colleges are offering a greater number of accelerated baccalaureate nursing programs, according to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (Martin 5). Yet despite the increasing number of such programs, shortfalls in the number of nurses needed to fill vacancies still exist. Exacerbating the problem of the nursing shortage is the fact that is also a shortage of nursing faculty. Examination of this problem shows that the first, and perhaps the most crucial step, in solving the nursing shortage is to increase the number of number of nursing faculty members in order to break a negative cycle that is powering this national healthcare crisis.

Shortage of Nursing Faculty
A 3 page nursing literature review that examines articles on the nursing faculty shortage. The nursing shortage is a healthcare crisis that has been recognized as affecting medical services at the global, regional and local levels (Mathews, 2003a). A corresponding shortage in nursing faculty serves to perpetuate and compound this problem, as a nursing faculty shortage limits the number of applicants that can be accepted for nursing degree programs. This literature review shows the causes and the scope of this problem, as well as proposed solutions. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
