Why Is There A Nursing Faculty Shortage - Reflections

how to retain nursing faculty

Graduating seniors received their pins showing that they graduated from Caldwell University and symbolizing pride and accomplishment that unites nurses all over the world. Pinning ceremonies celebrate the achievement of meeting the high standards of the nursing curriculum. The nursing pin was designed by representatives from the first graduating class of Caldwell University in 2012. The centrally located Nightingale lamp is a symbol of care and comfort to the sick and suffering. The cross represents the institution’s Dominican commitment and Judeo-Christian tradition. Laurel leaves encircle the pin and symbolize success, peace and life. At this year’s ceremony Professor and Director of Nursing Theodora Sirota PhD, APRN-BC, CNL said the faculty prepared the graduates with a strong educational foundation to meet the challenges ahead.  “You have been taught by gifted and passionate nurse educators who have constantly modelled excellence in all nursing activities.  The education you have received here will serve you well as you enter nursing practice in a climate of ever-expanding health care possibilities and novel roles for professional nurses.” The keynote address was given by Dr. Wendy Silverstein, manager of clinical education and nursing research at Morristown Medical Center. She encouraged the students to engage in lifelong learning including considering getting an advanced degree and certifications, joining a professional organization and getting involved. “Be passionate about striving for the best possible outcomes,” and represent the profession proudly, she said.
