Teaching and Learning in Nursing Volume 2, Number 1 ISSN 1557-3087 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
While much can be found in the literature about what constitutes quality teaching and learning, little published research addresses how to structure faculty workloads to maximize faculty productivity without jeopardizing program quality. This descriptive study provides an initial look at issues of program structure (student-to-faculty ratios in class and in clinical settings, teaching loads for the director and the faculty, and salaries) that most affect the cost of delivery for associate degree nursing programs.
