NuFAQs is a web-based tool that guides you in exploring the workload, job characteristics, and attitudes toward work-life among full-time nurse faculty in the U.S. NuFAQs reports on responses to the National Survey of Nurse Faculty from a nationally representative sample of all full-time faculty members teaching in nursing schools that offer at least one degree program that prepares graduates to sit for the licensure examination.
- Results were compiled from responses from all full-time nurse faculty members teaching in over 270 nursing programs that were selected to be representative of all pre-licensure ADN and BSN programs in the United States.
- The survey was administered by postal mail, Web, and telephone. Completed questionnaires were received from 3,120 faculty members. The overall faculty response rate was 78%.
- Please cite the following for using data from this study (and website): National Survey of Nurse Faculty 2011, Rutgers University Center for State Health Policy, with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
