The retention of nursing faculty in the United States is a growing concern as the faculty vacancy rate has increased both at state and national levels where unfilled positions directly affect the supply and demand of the nursing workforce. One of the challenges faced by deans and directors of schools of nursing is to identify strategies that will encourage faculty to remain in academe. Several studies have examined recruitment and retention of nurses in the clinical setting however, current empirical data on the factors that contribute to the job satisfaction and job dissatisfaction of nursing faculty in higher education is limited. The purpose of this descriptive study was to utilize Herzberg?s Motivation-Hygiene Theory of Job Satisfaction to explore the factors that predict nursing faculty?s intent to stay in academe. Participants included a convenience sample of nursing faculty teaching in baccalaureate and graduate nursing programs in Florida. Research findings indicated that highly educated, experienced nursing faculty reported having more intent to stay in academe. Conversely, age, health-related conditions, and family responsibilities were not significantly related to intent to stay. A significant relationship was found between the motivation-hygiene factor score and the intent to stay. The significant relationship between the motivational factors (Job satisfiers) and the hygiene factors (job dis-satisfiers) and intent to stay indicated that the nursing faculty overall were satisfied with their jobs. The results provide support that Herzberg?s Motivation-Hygiene Theory is a strong predictor of nursing faculty?s intent to stay in academe in Florida.
