Abstract

AIM

The specific aim of the study was to describe nursing faculty experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic.

BACKGROUND

Academic nursing experiences were disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There is concern that the resulting stress threatens nursing faculty emotional well-being.

METHOD

A descriptive, quantitative study was conducted, exploring faculty academic and clinical roles during the COVID-19 pandemic, including perception of institutional support provided; faculty burnout, satisfaction, and well-being; and student support needs and well-being.

RESULTS

Analyses were performed on 117 quantitative and 49 qualitative responses. Participants perceived support from academic institutions and increased need to provide emotional support to students. Most reported negative effects on well-being but did not report high levels of burnout.

CONCLUSION

Nursing faculty are essential to the profession. Stress responses from the COVID-19 pandemic may not be fully realized. Nursing faculty require proactive and sustained institutional and personal support to provide exceptional ongoing education, build resilience, and support students.
