Abstract

Faculty practice is promoted in schools of nursing for the purposes of strengthening the clinical expertise of faculty, maintaining clinically relevant curricula, fostering student learning, and generating revenue. For clinical faculty, this practice often provides the foundation for academic scholarship. The integration of this scholarship into the traditional academic triad of education, research, and service has proved difficult. Pohl et al notes, "In promotion and tenure decisions, 68 percent of faculty reported that practice was weighted less than teaching and research in their institutions."1 There appears to be an inherent tension between the requirements for scholarly faculty practice and the academic missions of schools of nursing. The purpose of this article is to describe a framework for the evaluation of faculty practice at the Johns Hopkins University School Nursing (JHUSON) and the actions taken to align the scholarship of faculty practice with the academic research mission of the School.
