IU School of Nursing Awarded Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
Grant to Study Doctoral Education
The School of Nursing has been awarded a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Evaluating Innovations in Nursing Education grant in support of a study examining the stages of decision-making that lead to careers in nursing education. Findings will be used to develop strategies for increasing enrollment in doctoral programs as well as the numbers of graduates who seek and are retained in The study, "Exploring the State of Doctoral Education: Implications for the Nursing Faculty Shortage," is led by School of Nursing assistant professor Kristina Thomas Dreifuerst. Co-investigators on the study are Dean Marion Broome; associate professor Angela McNelis; and professors Claire Draucker and Michael Weaver.
"This was a highly competitive grant process from a prestigious organization. We are honored to have one of the few research proposals selected for this notable funding," Dreifuerst said.
"This is a critical time in nursing education," she said. "The shortage of faculty, particularly doctorally prepared faculty, impacts all aspects of the nursing discipline.
While this is not a new problem, new solutions are necessary to move forward. This research will be instrumental in helping to address these needs and develop The study will investigate the decisions that MSN-prepared nurse educators make when seeking a doctoral degree; those factors informing decisions of doctoral students choosing between a Ph.D. and a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree; decisions of doctoral students to seek faculty positions; satisfaction of recent http://www.research.iupui.edu/enterprise/archive/2012/enterprise-10-11.html[1/17/2013 5:00:01 PM] doctoral graduates with academic and/or practice roles; and intentions of recent graduates to stay in their current roles.
"The data gathered will allow us to develop effective strategies for increasing doctoral enrollment in pursuit of faculty placement," Dreifuerst said.
The Institute of Medicine Report "The Future of Nursing" has indicated that identifying solutions to address the shortage of nursing faculty and doctorally prepared nurses in the United States is a priority.
"This research proposal addresses six areas of need that are critical to achieving the recommendations from the IOM report on 'The Future of Nursing': one, teaching productivity in nursing education; two, faculty preparation in nursing education; three, the shortage of doctorally prepared nursing faculty; four, career decision- making among doctoral students in nursing; five, effectiveness of strategies for leveraging the expertise of existing faculty to teach more doctoral and undergraduate students in nursing; and six, strategies to improve recruitment and retention efforts for nurse faculty," Dreifuerst said.
According to Broome, "We are one of only five studies funded this cycle through an extremely competitive process, and it's very exciting to be able to further investigate the nursing faculty shortage and relevant mitigating circumstances. The results of this study will have a tremendous impact on the way the discipline mentors nurses and helps them to define their career paths in nursing education."

RHI specializes in brain injury, spinal cord injury, stroke and comprehensive medical rehabilitation for injuries or illnesses resulting in loss of function. RHI is a community collaboration between "As the sole traumatic brain injury model system site in the state of Indiana, this award further validates best practice in rehabilitation care. It is comforting for RHI patients, acute care hospital physicians and the Indianapolis community to know that patients with brain injuries, those sustaining strokes, spinal cord injuries, multiple trauma and other injuries or illnesses have available to them outstanding rehabilitation professionals at the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana and Indiana University School of Medicine," said Daniel B. Woloszyn, Ph.D., chief executive officer and clinical neuropsychologist at the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana.
Along with sustaining and contributing to the longitudinal database, centers that are named to the TBI Model Systems program participate in local and collaborative research projects, focusing on the federal agency's areas of emphasis including employment, health and function, independent living and community integration.
The Indianapolis proposal includes the Brain Research in Aggression and Irritability Network, or BRAIN, which develops and studies treatment of irritability and aggression caused by brain injuries.
"Irritability and aggression are common problems for individuals with traumatic brain injury and can have a corrosive effect on their interactions with people and their ability to stay employed," Dr. Hammond said.
"Yet, we really don't have quality measures of their impact. There are a few good studies of treatments, but the standards for managing these problems are The BRAIN project will include two primary studies that were developed with input from the traumatic brain injury community.
*A study of the effectiveness of buspirone in treating post-TBI irritability and aggression. Buspirone, sold under the brand names Buspar and Vanspar, is primarily prescribed to treat anxiety disorders or short-term symptoms of anxiety.
*Preliminary development of a standardized measure to assess the impact of aggression and irritability. Measuring impact is a new yet complementary approach to existing measures of the expression of irritability and aggression.
In addition to its research initiative, BRAIN is a comprehensive model service delivery system serving individuals with traumatic brain injury. The system includes prevention and emergency medical services, intensive and acute care, comprehensive medical rehabilitation, long-term follow-up, community reintegration and vocational rehabilitation. The system serves more than 70,000 Indiana residents and is expected to enroll more than 70 participants annually into the TBI Model System national database.
