Abstract This study investigates qualifications, level of employment, state and territory differences, and gender of nurse-academics in Australian universities. It describes these personal and professional characteristics and the interactions of some characteristics. Frequency descriptions were done to describe data, and cross-tabulations and analysis of variance were used to investigate relationships. The most significant findings were that not enough nurse-academics are qualified at the doctoral level, and nurse-academics are under-represented at senior levels in comparison with all Australian academics. Recommendations for strategies to encourage and facilitate suitably qualified nurse-academics to undertake doctoral study are made.
