The shortage of nursing professors in Canada and its effects on nursing education programs offered in French

This publication was originally in french

This qualitative study describes the shortage of nursing faculty and its present and potential impacts on Canadian French nursing programs as well as strategies to overcome these impacts from the perspectives of the Deans and Directors of these programs. The impacts of the shortage are particularly concerning for nursing programs that are delivered in a francophone minority context or in a remote area. The shortage could jeopardize the French nursing programs and, consequently, would threaten the quality of healthcare services offered to francophone minority communities in Canada.
