OCN Releases New Infographic
on Nurse Faculty

The Oregon Center for Nursing (OCN) today released “Oregon’s Nurse Faculty Challenges,” a new infographic to raise awareness of the underlying issues related to recruitment and retention of nurse faculty.

A 2014 survey conducted by OCN showed a majority of nurse educators are over the age of 55, and five out of 10 nurses report planning to retire within the next 10 years.

“The wave of retirements is already taking place,” said OCN Executive Director Jana R. Bitton. “Our research shows the number of faculty members retiring is only going to increase in coming years. This will put a huge strain on our nursing education system, which will affect Oregon’s ability to educate the next generation of nurses.”
