What can be done to increase Nurse educator's compensation?
From this link:
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]In 2002, ... On average, full-time nurse faculty with a doctoral degree earned $61,000 in 2002-2003 while faculty with a master's degree earned $49,000.
Isn't that a paltry amount for the the work and need for those who train nurses?
There is a shortage of nurses and the spots can not be filled because there are not enough instructors.
This is not a "Woe! We are doomed by fate" thread I am quite serious in my question in what moves can be made either as an individual or as a group to rectify this unjust situation.
I am not even a nurse and I think it is an affront to the profession.
