The 2008 survey by the Indiana Nursing Workforce Development Coalition said faculty shortages prevent nursing programs from maintaining a supply of qualified applicants. About half of Indiana's nursing faculty work part time as adjunct faculty while they maintain jobs as nurses, but the schools need more nurses who are able to teach full time, the survey found.
