Abstract

Adjunct nurse educators have become a primary facilitator of students' clinical learning in nursing education. However, studies are lacking as to variables that correlate with their intent to stay teaching. This study examined demographic variables that had an impact on adjunct clinical educators' decisions about whether to leave a teaching position in an associate degree nursing program. Full-time employment in addition to teaching as an adjunct faculty member predicted intent to leave the role. Measures to improve adjunct nurse faculty intent to stay are included.
