The project is an evaluation of the impact of state-based support-for-service programs on recruitment, retention, and work-life of nurse faculty. The evaluation includes programs that support graduate students pursuing nursing degrees as well as those providing loan repayment for recently prepared nurse faculty members. Researchers are collecting data on participants in programs in several states. They selected appropriate comparison groups of non-participants for addressing key evaluation questions. Dr. Jennifer Craft Morgan of the UNC Institute on Aging is leading this evaluation project.
