Abstract

AIM

This qualitative study sought to describe motivators and outcomes of academic nurse education certification.

BACKGROUND

Several studies have explored perceptions of the value of nurse educator certification (CNE). However, there is a gap in understanding motivators and outcomes of certification as a nurse educator.

METHOD

As part of a larger, web-based, mixed-method study, a national sample of certified and noncertified nursing educator administrators and faculty responded to nine open-ended questions. The inductive content analysis approach was used to identify constructs and themes.

RESULTS

From an overall sample of 721 participants, three constructs and associated themes emerged.

CONCLUSION

Motivators for pursing CNE align with previously reported intrinsic values. Participants seek extrinsic rewards as well. Educator outcomes include enhanced teaching and expanded roles. Student outcomes were less clear. Further study of outcomes of CNE is recommended to promote recognition of academic nursing education as an advanced nursing specialty.
