dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study is to investigate the characteristics of altruism in nursing professors and why it is important for them to have such traits to recruit new nursing educators. The analysis of responses from nursing faculty at Ball State University shows that the faculty members take great pride in their work and draw upon many forms for their inspiration. The shortage of nursing educators and nursing professors is well documented; we need qualified, altruistic nursing professors to recruit new nurses to follow in their footsteps. Included in the survey were questions such as “what is the faculty member’s background, inspiration, and idea of altruism?” An analysis of the responses was done to put together a summary that shows the thoughts of altruistic nursing professors at Ball State. Characteristics of an altruistic nursing faculty member included kindness, compassion, being caring and interested in the students, encouraging, professional, and supportive.
