Teaching more efficiently while maintaining quality and consistency of course offerings is imperative in nursing education. At odds with this goal for nursing faculty are increased workloads impacted by trends to provide more distance learning, the faculty shortage, and pressure to produce more nurses at all educational levels. The Lead Faculty Workload Model updates current methods of evaluating workload and formalizes the role of lead faculty members and supporting faculty members with current expectations and responsibilities for mentoring and monitoring junior faculty. As a new standard, this new model provides a more equitable way to address chronic and more recent faculty workload issues.
