A survey was conducted to assess nursing faculty (n = 231) knowledge of the Americans With Disabilities Act requirements. Only 21% (n = 46) of the participants received a passing score of 78%. While 76% (n = 161) knew that students must provide documentation of a disability to receive accommodation, 49% (n = 104) did not recognize that an individual faculty member may be held personally liable if he/she fails to provide accommodation. Participants’ knowledge of the Act was low and could create barriers to student success.
