Hi everyone, I am so proud to read all the previous entry because I am just at the very beginning of nursing world. I am doing mu undergraduate in nursing in Indonesia, although I am on my final year, still I feel small in this big nursing world.
Shortage of nurse educators, especially in my university where I studied is definitely true. Well, we don't have so many lectures here in my Uni. I guess we have like 25 lectures together with tutor and clinical educator here in my school. Probably because we are a new school of nursing so we also still have only few lectures. but I guess why we have shortage is because there aren't many nurse in Indonesia (i don't have any accurate information about this) who have graduate degree. in my uni to be a lecture, he/she must at least finish master degree. Well, that is my naive point of view. Hopefully it will help you.
P.S. reading this entry, encourage me to pursue my dream to have PhD in nursing someday in the future.
